THAT SPEAKING OR PROFFERING BRINGS
ALWAY SPEEDING.


S PEAK thou and speed where will or power
            ought helpeth
  Where power doth want, will must be
                            won by wealth :
For need will speed, where will works not his kind ;
And gain thy foes thy friends shall cause thee find :
For, suit and gold, what do not they obtain ?
Of good and bad the tryers are these twain.
