THE EPISTOLARY CORRESPONDENCE

OF

SIR RICHARD STEEL E.

IN TWO VOLUM E S.

Hail, mighty name! of all thy pen
Has dropt, to charm both gods and men,
Time nor oblivion ne'er Thall boast
One line or single period loft!
Improving youth, and hoary age,
Are better'd by thy matchless page!

Maintain, grcat Sage, thy deathless name,
Thou canst no wider stretch thy fame.
Till, gliding from her native skies,
Virtue once more delighted fies;
By each adoring Patriot own’d,
And boasts herself by thee enthron'd.

MDCC LXXXVII.
