George Gascoigne : The Posies

[MARGINALIA]:'The discouerie of his mistress, a false diamant. His sicknes, & Jealosie did not help the matter, but did marre all. Woomen loue men: & care not for pore harts, that cannot bestead them. Especially at the returne of his ritual, her Secretarie; it imported him to empooue himself more, then before; & not to languish like a milkstop, or to play the pore snake vpon himself. Ladie Elinor woold haue liked the man and woold haue maintained his possession by force of armes, & with braue encounters beat his enimie owt of the field.'

Century: 1500-1599     Reader/Listener/Group: Gabriel Harvey      Print: Book
