With Peete of State, dost make thy Muse to mete the scenes of Syracuse and Palestine.
These lines, taken in conjunction with the dedicatory sonnet already printed, afford satisfactory evidence that Davies is addressing the author of Mariam. That the later Viscountess Falkland is intended is also clear, for though there were several Lady Elizabeth Carys, and several Sir Henry Carys, there appears to have been but one Lady Elizabeth who was the wife of a Sir Henry. The material portions of Davies' dedication will be found printed at the end of the present introduction.
If Lady Elizabeth Cary was the E. C. Of the sonnet, who was the Mistress Elizabeth Carey.> Sir Henry Cary, later Viscount Falkland, had a sister Elizabeth, to whom the designation would of course apply, but it appears that she married Sir John Savile on 20 nov. 1 y86, when the author of Mariam must have been still in her cradle. But Sir Henry also had a rather obscure brother Philip, who was knighted sometime between March 16 0 5 and April 1609, and this Philip married a certain Elizabeth Bland of Carle ton, Yorks. This lady must then have been the Mistress Elizabeth Cary to whom Mariam is dedicated.
