TO CAPTAIN B

&c. &c.

WHILE Sovereigns-save our royal Sire,

Who justly has become the rageAre goods that have begun to tire

The humours of the ripening Age; While—thanks to whiskered peers*~the clown

In print, at least, can play the roverCross seas whose depth can never drown,

And shores untrod-in Truth discover ; While ermined “INFLUENCE” half forsakes

Her flock to no contemn’d attacks; While Pelham for his boroughs quakes,

And Jersey trembles for “ Almacks”; While thus the old world ;-Captain H

Writes foolish books about the newWeeps tears of ink when despots fall,

And damns poor Murray's lost Review.
