There was one who told the Master,
that if he had an hundred pounds,
hee would give foure-score and ten to be at home :
but the Carpenter made answere, that if hee had an hundred,
hee would not give ten upon any such condition,
but would thinke it to be as good money as ever he had any,
and to bring it as well home, by the leave of God.
After many words to no purpose,
to worke we must on all hands,
to get our selves out,
and to cleere our ship.
After much labour and time spent,
we gained roome to turn out ship in,
and so by little and little,
to get cleere in the Sea a league or two off,
our course being North and North-west.
