having into truth, by telling of it, Made

own lie. Here, even when, having substituted
with Malone unto to the evident blunder into,
one would let pass the hyperbaton instead of
having made of his memory such a sinner
unto truth, and the less common construction
of sin unto for against, there is to boot always
in this passage a confusion, increased by it,
having no grammatical reference, but the far
following lie, and by the anacoluthon who
having made. Musgrave therefore and Voss
corrected: having sinn'd to truth, by telling
oft it Makes etc. But the said difficulties are
mot removed even by this emendation, and
made seems more dramatic, because nearer
and more particularly relative to the subject.
Therefore one might be tented to read: who
having undone truth by failing oft it (or by
soiling of it, or by lying often). Made such
a sinner etc. For our part we would yet rather
correct, than impute to the poet such a neg-
