Vilia miretur vulgas, mihi favus Apollo
Pocula Castalia plena ministret aqua.

Ovid. Amor. l. 1. El, 15,


To the Right Honourable


Earl of Southampton, and Baron-of Tichfield.

Right Honourable,

I know not how I shall offend, in dedicating my unpolished lines to your lordship ; nor how the world will censure me, for chusing so Atrong a prop to support fo weak a burden : only if your honour feem but pleased, I account myself highly praised, and vow to take advantage of all idle hours, till I have honoured you with some graver labour. But if the first heir of my invention prove deformed, I fhall be sorry it had so noble a godfather, and never after ear so barren a land, for fear it yield me still so bad a harvest. I leave it to your honourable survey, and your honour to your

heart's content ; which I wish may always answer your own wish, and the world's hopeful expectation.

Your Honour's in all duty,

Will. Shakespcar.
