Lettering

Love declar'd from Rene to Sarotte. C. Troost pinxit. Wilson fecit. Upon my word, 'twill never do! Cease formal fool, to sigh and woo, or learn a lover's duty. Likely, no doubt, with hems and haws, and stupid looks, and rev'rend saws, to charm a blooming beauty. R... Those eyes were meant to roll with bliss, those lips to tell th' inspir'd kiss. S... Not Thine, I dare engage. Trust me, a sprightlier bird Mynheer, (I think she speaks it with a sneer) shall warble in my cage.
