L E T TER I.
Mr. Waller to Lady Lucy, Sister to Lady

Dorothy Sydney.
Madam,

N this common Joy at Penshurst, I
know to whom Complaints may
come less unfeasonable than to your
Ladyship; the Loss of a Bedfellow

being almost equal to that of a Mirtrets, and therefore you ought at least to pardon, if you consent not to, the Imprecations of the Deserted, which just Heaven no doubt will hear. May my Lady Dorothy, if we may yet call her fo, suffer as much, and have the like Passion for this young Lord, whom she has preferred to the rest of Mankind, as others have had for her; and may this Love, before the Year go about, make her taste of the first Curse imposed VOL. II.
