Longways for as many as will; in two parts (1st Ed., 1650).
|All lead up a double and fall back a double to places (r.s.).
|First man faces up and moves two slips to his left.
|First woman faces up and moves two slips to her right.
|First man slips back to his place.
|First woman slips back to her place.
|First man and first woman face each other, fall back a double, and move forward a double to places (r.s.).
|First man and first woman clap hands on the first beat of the bar, and strike their right hands together on the middle beat.
|Same again, striking left hands together.
|First man claps hands on the first beat of the bar, and strikes his chest with both hands on the middle beat; while the first woman does the same.
|First man and first woman strike both their hands together (right on left and left on right) on the first beat of the bar.
|All that again, striking left hands first.
|First and second men side; while first and second women do the same (r.s.).
|First and second men go a single to the right and honour, and then change places, passing by the left; while first and second women do the same (progressive).
|As in First Part, first and second men doing as the first man did, first and second women as the first woman did.
|All four fall back a double and move forward a double to places (r.s.).
|Both couples do as first man and first woman did in First Part.
It will probably be found more effective to omit the First Part altogether.
