page 129; Lancashire, north of the sands:-
The seaven and twentieth Song.
  argument, Lancashire

The circuit of this Shire exprest,
Erwell, and Ribble then contest;
The Muse next to the Mosses flies,
And to fayre Wyre her selfe applies,
The Fishy Lun then doth shee bring,
The praise of Lancashire to sing,
The Isle of Man maintains her plea,
Then falling Eastward from that Sea,
On rugged Furnesse, and his Fells,
Of which this Canto lastly tells.
Matter relevant to Lancashire north of the sands is transcribed.
