God's in Gloc'ster

 

From GLOUCESTERSHIRE.

No Pimping here, nor Fornication;
The chastest Diocess iíthí Nation;
And all without a Visitation.
Itís plain then, since we have no Pastor,
The Flock to feed, or Church to foster,
Thí old Proverbís true, that Godís in Glocíster.

(The Weekly Oracle: or, Universal Library, 7 December 1734)
