By MR. P RIO R.
To the Right Honourable Mr. HARLEY. HORACE, 1 Ep. ix. imitated.
"Septimius, Claudi, nimirum intelligit unus, "Quanti me facias, &c."
DEAR Dick*, howe'er it comes into his head,
Believes as firmly as he does his creed,
That you and I, Sir, are extremely great;
* Richard Shelton Ésquire.
From this wild fancy, Sir, there may proceed
To fhun this cenfure, I all fame lay by ;
To Mr. HARLEY, wounded by GUISCARD, 17.
Ducit opes animumque ferro."
IN one great now, fuperior to an age,
The full extremes of Nature's force we find : How heavenly Virtue can exalt; or Rage Infernal how degrade the human mind.
