To all Ladies, Gentlewomen, and to all other of the Female Sex who do delight in, or be desirous of good Accomplishments.

Ladies and Gentlewomen,

I Presume those Bookes which have passed from me formerly, have got me some little credit and esteem amongst you.

But there being so much time past since they were Printed, that methinks, I hear some of you say_ I wish Mrs. Wolley would put forth some New Experiments and to say the Truth, I have been importun’d by divers of my Friends and Acquaintance to do so.
