Broadside ballad entitled ‘In Praise of the Gallant Weavers’

Verse 1: ‘[missing] Gentlemen; and listen well / to a Song I’m to endite, / [In] Praise of all the Weavers / how much do I delight? / [T]o speak forth what I think of them, / for they deserve the praise, / And of their works these Garments are, / which makes pride now a days.’ The ballad was to be sung ‘To its own proper new Tune’. for more click here
