Nick and froth, or, The good-fellows complaint for want of full measure : discovering the deceits, and abuses of victuallers, tapsters, ale-drapers, and all the rest of the society of drunkard-makers : by filling their drink in false flaggons, pimping tankerds, cans, call'd ticklers : rabbits, jugs, and short quarterns, to the grand abuse of the society of good-fellowship. Good fellows drinks their liquor without flinching : then why should knavish tapsters use such pinching : tune of, We'l drink this old ale no more, no more.
