    Thomas Lord Cromwell (Folio 3, 1664)

    Enter Chorus.
    260Cho. Now Gentlemen imagine, that young Cromwell is
    In Antwerp, Ledger for the English Merchants:
    And Banister to shun this Bagots hate,
    Hearing that he hath got some of his debts,
    Is fled to Antwerp, with his wife and children,
    265Which Bagot hearing is gone after them:
    And thither sends his bills of debt before,
    To be revenged on wretched Banister,
    What doth fall out, with patience sit and see,
    A just requital of false trecherie.
