The Image of Irelande by John Derricke, 1581, plate 7

Text:

B
Which for to prove in every poynt, (to his eternall fame)
He standeth forth in open field, for tryall of the same,
Round compast with a worthy crewe, most comely to be seene,
A
Of Captaines bolde, for to behold the honor of that Queene.
And they be garded with the like, of valiaunt Souldiars then:
Whereof the meanest have been founde, full often doughty men.

C
All which are in readynes, to venture lyfe and bloud:
For safegard of her happy state, whereon our safeties stoode,
Bute ere the enter mongest those broyles, Syr Henry doth prefarre:
(If happ to get) a blessed peace, before most cruell warre,
Which if they will not take in worth, (the folly is their owne)
For then he goeth with fire and sworde, to make her power knowne.

The man in the centre receiving a letter from Sir Philip Sydney is labelled "Donolle Ohreane the messenger", and is saying "shogh".
