Verse in four columns, two on either side of the title: "When civil dudgeon first grew high, and men fell out they knew not why: when Gospel-trumpeter surrrounded with long-ear'd rout, to battel sounded, and pulpit drum ecclesiastick was beat with fist, instead of a stick, then did Sir Knight abandon dwelling and out he rose a colonelling. A squire he had, whose name was Ralph, that in th' adventure went his half. An equal stock of wit and valour he had laid in, by birth a taylor. Their armes and equipage did fit as well as vertues, parts and wit their valorus too were of a rate, and out they sally'd at the gate."

Abstract:
Hudibras and Ralpho riding on tired, emaciated horses travel on a country road. In the foreground to the left, a dog snarls at their approach while to the right, a man, holding a rake in one hand and his hat in his other hand, laughs at the sight of the rotund rider as he backs into and knocks over a table laden with baskets of produce and a tankard as he bends toward the riders. Behind him on the right, his wife grabs for the falling baskets and reaches for him to prevent further damage, a look of alarm on her face.
