Rich wines and fpices wafte!. Like furgeon, or like brawn, Thall I Bound in a precious pickle, lie,

Which I can never tafte ?

Let me embalm this flesh of mine
With turtle-fat, and Bourdeaux wine,

And spoil th’Egyptian trade!
Than Humphry's duke more happy I-
Embalm'd alive, old Quin shall die

A mummy ready made.

EPITAP Η' ο Ν

APHON MR. QUIN.

[merged small][ocr errors][merged small]

THAT tongue, which set the table on a roar, And charmd the public ear, is heard no more! Clos'd are those eyes, the harbingers of wit, Which spoke, before the tongue, what Shake

fpeare writ. Cold are those hands, which, living, were

stretch'd forth, At friendftip's cal, to fuccour modeft worth. Here lies James, Quin! deign, reader, to be

taught, (Whate'er thy strength of body, force of thought, In nature's happief mould however cast) To this complexion thou must come at last.

EXTEMPORE, ON HEARING A CERTAIN IMPERTINENT ADDRESS IN THE NEWS-PAPERS.

BY GARRICK, THOMSON, &c.

THOU effence of dock, of valerian and sage, At once the disgrace and the peft of this age, The worst that we will thee for all thy damn'd

crimes, Is to take thy own phyfic and read thy own rhimes.

ANSWER TO THE JUNTO.

THEIR wish must be in form revers’d,

To suit the doctor's crimes ; For, if he takes his phyfic first,

He'll never read his rhimes.

DR. HILL'S REPLY TO THE JUNTO'S EPIGRAM.

YE desperate junto, ye great, or ye small,
Who combat dukes, doctors, the devil and all !
Whether gentlemen, scribblers, or poets in jail,
Your impertinent curses Ihall never prevail :
I'll take neither fage, dock, nor balsam of honey :
Do you take the phyfic, and I'll take the money.

ANTI-JUNTO.

DR. HILL UPON HIS PETITION OF THE

LETTÉR I TO MR. GÁRRICK.

SAM .

If'tis true, as you say, that I've injured a letter, I'll change my note foon, and I hope for the

better; May the right use of letters as well as of men, Hereafter be fix'd by the tongue and the pen; Most devoutly I wish that they both have their

due, And that I may be never mistaken for U.

GRACE.

[merged small][merged small][ocr errors][merged small][merged small][merged small]

YE beaux esprits, fay, what is Grace?
Dwells it in motion, shape, or face?
Or is it all the three combin'd,
Guided and soften'd by the mind ?
Where it is not, all eyes may see;
But where it is all hearts agree :
'Tis there, when easy in its state
The mind is elegantly great ;
Where looks give speech to ev'ry feature,
The sweetelt eloquence of nature ;
A harmony of thought and motion,
To which at once we pay devotion.
-But where to find this nonpareil !
Where does this female wonder dwell,
Who can at will our hearts command ?

Behold in public-CUMBERLAND!

LYCURGUS of Bath,

Be not given to wrath,
Thy rigours the fair fhould not feel :

Still fix them your debtors,

Make laws like your betters,
And as fast as you make them-repeal

MUST I, Clorinda, ever court?

Why all these pains your flame to smother? Or is it that I'm made your fport

To recommend you to another. Whate'er the cause, of this be sure,

Love's kneenest shaft has touch'd my heart; Nor will the wound admit of cure,

Until we're either friends or-part.
