TO MY FRIEND THE AUTHOR; PREFACE TO 'TIS PITY SHE'S A WHORE', by            
First Line: With admiration I beheld this whore
Last Line: Gloriously fair, even in her infamy.
Alternate Author Name(s): Ellys, Thomas; Ellis, Thomas
Subject(s): Ford, John (1586-1639)


With admiration I beheld this Whore,
Adorned with beauty such as might restore
(If ever being, as thy Muse hath famed)
Her Giovanni, in his love unblamed:
The ready Graces lent their willing aid;
Pallas herself now played the chambermaid,
And helped to put her dressings on. Secure
Rest thou that thy name herein shall endure
To the end of age; and Annabella be
Gloriously fair, even in her infamy.
