AND
My much Honoured Friend
Mrs. GRACE BUZBY,
Daughter to the Late
Sr. HENRY CARY,
Knight Banneret;
And WIFE to
Mr. ROBERT BUZBY,
Gentleman, and Wollen Draper of LONDON
Madam,
Your Kind and Good Acceptance of my
Endeavours in Work for You, and that Esteem You
have for what else I can do, make me bold to
present this Book to You; which by that time You
have perused, I doubt not but You will deem it
worthy of the Title it bears; and indeed it was never
opened before: If it may yield You any Delight orBenefit, I shall be glad; for as You have a true
Love and Esteem for me, so I have a very great
Love and Honourable Esteem for You; and shall
always be
_Your most Observant
servant_,
HANNAH WOLLEY.
To all Ladies, Gentlewomen, and to all other of the
Female Sex who do delight in, or be desirous of
good Accomplishments.
Ladies and Gentlewomen,
_I Presume those Bookes which have passed from
me formerly, have got me some little credit and
esteem amongst you.
But there being so much time past since they were
Printed, that methinks, I hear some of you say_ I
wish Mrs. Wolley would put forth some New
Experiments and to say the Truth, I have been
importun'd by divers of my Friends and
Acquaintance to do so.
I shall not give an Apish Example every Day or
Week to follow ridiculous and foolish Fancies, nor
could I be too like the Spaniard, always to keep inone Dress: I am not ashamed, nor do I disown
what I have already Printed, but some of you being
so perfect in your practises, and I very desirous
still to serve you, do now present you with this
Queen-like Closet: I do assure you it is worthy of
the Title it bears, for the very precious things you
will find in it.
Thus beseeching your kind Acceptance of this
Book, and of my earnest Desires to you, I take my
Leave, but shall always be to all who have esteem
for me,
Their Faithful and
Humble Servant,
HANNAH WOLLEY.
Ladies, I do here present you (yet)
That which sure will well content
A Queen-like Closet rich and brave
(Such) not many Ladies have:
Or Cabinet, in which doth set
Jems richer than in Karkanet;
(They) only Eies and Fancies please,
These keep your Bodies in good ease;
They please the Taste, also the Eye;
Would I might be a stander by:
Yet rather I would wish to eat,
Since 'bout them I my Brains do beat: And 'tis but reason you may say,
If that I come within your way;
I sit here sad while you are merry,
Eating Dainties, drinking Perry;
But I'm content you should so feed,
So I may have to serve my deed.
Hannah Wolley.
