Lettering

Der Tod zum Kaufmann. Herr Kaufmann, lasset euer Werben: die Zeit ist hie, ihr müsset sterben: der Tod nimmt weder Geld noch Gut, nun tanzet her mit frenem Muth. Antwort des Kaufmanns. Ich hatt' mich zu leben versorget wohl, Kisten und Kästen waren voll: der Tod hat meine Gaab verschmacht, und mich um Leib und Leben bracht.
