NEW YORK:

H AR PER & BROTHERS.

Now for the writing of this werke,
I, who am'a lonesome clerke,
Purposed for to write a book
After the world, that whilome took
Its course in oldè days Iong passed :
But for men sayn, it is now lassed
In worser plight than it was tho,
I thought me for to touch also
The world which neweth every day-
So as I can, so as I may,
Albeit I sickness have and pain,
And long have had, yet would I fain
Do my mind's hest and besiness,
That in some part, so as I guess,
The gentle mind may be advised.

GOWER, Pro. to the Confess. Amantis.
