The seamans doleful farewel or, The Greenwitch lovers mournful departure : see here the pattern of true love, which absence cannot stain : and nothing shall his mind remove, till he returns again : this may be printed, R.P. : tune of, State and ambition. [London] : Printed for J. Deacon at the sign of the Angel in Gilt-Spurr Street without Newgate, [between 1685 and 1688].
