    Following PU1/47/20/4, this poem contains puns on the names of Mrs Do-hany in Carrick, and Mrs Do-many in London. While the former 'picks oakum on skilly', the latter 'lives well, and sacks guineas', and both play on the 'folly of credulous ninnies'. Explains that Mrs Do-many makes money from 'sperrits' that perform such feats as 'jingle / Accordions', and concludes that just as Mrs Do-hany has been imprisoned, so should Mrs Do-many.
