By WILLIAM PARTRIDGE, Doctor of Astrology.
Here you may read with great Surprize,
Of Mysteries hid from vulgar Eyes;
Of wondrous deed by Magic wrought,
Exceeding all Belief or Thought;
Yet is this Art so well-explained,
That our Magic may be gained;
And every matter clearly known,
You Neighbour’s fortune — or your own.
