First words
The land of Judah had never attained to that refindness in Gallantry, as under the Reign of David; that Prince having overcome all his Enemies both Forreign and Domestick, and established himself by his just and gentle Government, as well in the Hearts of his People, as upon the Throne of Israel, gave up those hours which are so necessary for Refreshment to amorous Designs, and was herein so universally imitated by all his Subjects, that there was none of what Age and Condition soever but had some Intrigue; insomuch that by this general Practice, there was no manner of Artifice, Conrivance, or Strategem for the well managing an Amour, but what was brought to the highest Perfection, during the time of his swaying the Scepter.
