  • Dedication: For Linda Godfrey
  • Epigraph:

    And when the tenantes come to paie their quarter’s rent,

    They bring some fowls at Midsummer, a dish of fish in Lent;

    At Christmasse a capon, at Michaelmasse a goose,

    And somewhat else at New-yere’a tide, for feare their lease flie loose

    —George Gascoigne
