Meet all. Two slips to the left hand and two to the right. Men turn single to the left hand and back again, while the women turn the contrary way. Meet again, change places, then change with your own and turn single. Men back a double, (while) women turn single. Men cross over taking left hands, turn the contrary women with the right hand and stay there. Women go back, (while) men turn single. Women cross over, handing right hands, turn your own with the left.
Meet all a double, change places, set and turn single. That again. Men meet and stand. Women as much. Hands all, four slips half round and turn single. Women meet, men meet and four slips to your places and turn single.
Meet all, take each others women by both hands, two slips to the left and two to the right. Men cast off to yours, come to your places, women following. Back all, change places with your own. Men cross about each other and fall back to your first places, women doing the like, not turning your faces. Men honor, women honor. Right hands a cross and go round. Women honor, men honor, left hands a cross and go half round. Fall all a breast to the presence.
