Wing H3616 L; CH, CLC, IU, MH, WF, Y. A satirical reply to The petition of the ladies of London and Westminster to the honourable House for husbands. 1693. "They complain that the Holy State of Matrimony has of late been very irreverently spoken of, that it has been rhymed to Death in Sonnet, and murdered in Effigie upon the stage. Now we would not be guilty of that ill breeding, to say that the Ladies all along found the Matter, and the Satyrists only found the words. However we are assured from all hands, that those Persons who have taken the greatest pains to expose that Holy State, were all of 'em married .and we hope the Ladies don't expect we should either defend or condemn them till we are married our selves, and Consequently in a Capacity to judge on which side the Truth lies.
