|'Every whore and Rogue run thither. How can you punish these unlawfull, & scandalous Cooplings? He is a very villain, and Fills us with Beggars . He is one of the Churches Banditti'.|
|'This Carduus Fullonum is sown upon good land, and flourisheth in June and July; the heads are ripe and hardened in August, gatherd and sold upon Cloathing Towns. I do not question but we may raise them in this Country, provided we can get the true and genuine Seeds; and I shall be willing to try the Experiment'.|
|'guilty on an Ante-Nuptual Roguery, a Crime to which most young Fellows here plead an unpunishable pr'scription. Confession with God is the way to pardon, but with men it is confess and be hang'd'.|
|'The Churches scandall and ye towns disgrace, A pampered Priest both infamous and base, A lazy Glutton, sunk in downy ease, 'Who studies but his appetite to please.'|

|By your Example Charity revives,|
Neglected Hospitality now thrives;
The Sick and Poor (a like) your Bounty share,
And starving Virtue by your gen'rous Care,
Puts on plump Looks, assumes its wonted State,
And gains Admittance at your liberal Gate.
With Loaves and Prayers the Hungry you relieve,
And prove, to give, is better than receive;
Your Alms and Care supply the Orphan's need,
Their Souls instruct, their Bodies Cloath and feed.
In Funds above, you place your Happy Store,
And God observes your bankers are the Poor.
