Lord Delamere

No: 207; variant: 207C

  1. O THE Duchess of Devonshire was standing hard by; Upon her dear husband she cast her lovely eye: ‘Oh, fie upon treachery! there’s been treachery I say, It was your full intent to have taen my duke’s life away.’
  2. Then away to the parliament these votes all went again, And there they acted like just and honest men. I neither curse my king, nor kingdom, crown or throne, But I wish every honest man to enjoy but what is his own.
