Rol. It is not the fashion to see the Lady the epilogue ; but it is no more un handsome, than to see the Lord the prologue. If it be true, that good wine needs no bulb, 'tis true, that a good play needs no epilogue. Let to good wine they do use good bushes; and good plays prove the better by the help of good epilogues. What a case am I in then, that am neither a good epilogue, nor can insinuate with you in the behalf of a good play? I. am: no: furnith'd like a beggar; therefore to beg will
not become me. My way is to conjure you, and Pit begin with the women. I charge you, O women, for the love you bear to men, to like as much of this play as pleafes you: and I charge you, O men, for the love you bear to women, (as I perceive by your fimpring, none of you hate them) that between you and the women, the play may please. If I were a woman, I would kiss as many of you as had beards that pleas'd me, complexions that lik'd me, and breaths that I defy'd not: and I am fure, as many as have good beards, or good faces, or sweet breaths, will for my kind offer, when I makecurt'ly, bid me farewel.
