To the Honourable Knight, Sir
Robert Karre.


When I was almost at Court, I met
the Princes Coach: I think I o-
beyed your purposes best therefore, in
comming hither. I am sure I provided
best for my selfe thereby; since my best de-
gree of understanding is to bee governed
by you. I beseech you give mee an assig-
nation where I may wait upon you at your
commoditie this Evening. Till the per-
formance of which commandment from
you, I rest here in the red Lion.

Your very thankfull and affectionate


J. Donne.
