And all he encountered fell upon,
Though in the Dark and all alone.
Till Fear, that braver Feats performs

So he was serv'd in his Redoubt,
And by the other end pulld out.

Soon as they had him at their Mercy,

Until his Scouts came int' his Aid.
For when a Man is paft his Senfe,
There's no way to reduce him thence,
But twinging him by th’ Ears or Nofe,
Or laying on of heavy Blows,
And if that will not do the Deed,
To burning with Hot Irons proceed.***.

No sooner was he come t himself,

And thus attackd him with Reproof :
