Lettering

Trothhe cunning ward or guardian coax'd. Chloe 'tis true, charming Leer, You coax your amorous Guardian Here, And He returns the Favour But what's your other Hand about. Ah. cunning Puss! I've found it out Troth this is kind behaviour! Still, dearest Girl, deceive him on. The Charms of Beauty soon are gone, As learned wits discover; Then watch the soft successful hour, With art evade the Dotard's power. And bless thy youthful Lover. C. Troost pinxit. Wilson fecit.
