Stran 201 - Maecenas of the nation, For poets open table kept, But ne'er consider'd where they slept : Himself as rich as fifty Jews, Was easy, though they wanted shoes...
Stran 195 - And take it kindly meant to show What I desire the world should know. I get a whisper, and withdraw, When twenty fools I never saw Come with petitions fairly penn'd, Desiring i would stand their friend.
