Summary

Of Gouernment, the properties to vnfold, 
 Would seeme in me t'affect speech & discourse, 
 Since I am put to know, that your owne Science 
 Exceedes (in that) the lists of all aduice 
 My strength can giue you: Then no more remaines 
 But that, to your sufficiency, as your worth is able, 
 And let them worke : The nature of our People, 
 Our Cities Institutions, and the Termes 
 For Common Iustice, y'are as pregnant in 
 As Art, and practise, hath inriched any 
 That we remember : There is our Commission, 
 From which, we would not haue you warpe; call hither, 
 I say, bid come before vs Angelo: 
 What figure of vs thinke you, he will beare. 
 For you must know, we haue with speciall soule 
 Elected him our absence to supply; 
 Lent him our terror, drest him with our loue, 
 And giuen his Deputation all the Organs 
 Of our owne powre : What thinke you of it?
