To the Right Honourable
H E N R T W R I 0 T H E S L T, Earl of Southampton, -and Barm e/Tichsield.
I know not how I shall offend, in dedicating my unpolished lines to your lordship; nor how the world will censure me, for chusing fo strong a prop to support fo weak a burden: only if your honour seem but pleased, I account myself highly praised, and vow to take advantage of all idle hours, till I have honoured you with some graver labour. But if the sirst heir of my invention prove deformed, I shall be forry it had fo noble a godfather, and-never aster ear'fo barren a land, for sear it yield me still fo bad a harvest. I leave it to your honourable survey, and your honour to your heart's content; which I wish may always answer your own wish, and the world's hopesul expectation.
Your Honour's in all duty,
