Unattributed in the manuscript source, the style and subject matter of this short glee are reminiscent of Thomas Arne.

Lyrics: Anon

"O Death, how thou spoilest the best project of life",
Said Gabriel, who still, as he buried one wife,
For the sake of her family married her cousin.
And then in an honest collateral line
He still married on 'til his number was nine,
Full sorry to die 'til he made up his dozen.

Anon
(c.1770)

Wives by the dozen

(A.T.B.)
