Excerpt: ... EPITAPHS ON MRS. CORBET, Who Died Of A Cancer In Her Breast 1730 Here rests a woman, good without pretence, Blest with plain reason, .and with sober sense: No conquests she, but o'er herself, desired. No arts essayed, but not to be admired. Passion and pride were to her soul unknown, Convinced that virtue only is our own. So unaffected, so composed a mind; So firm, yet soft; so strong, yet so refined; Heaven, as its purest gold, by tortures tried; The saint sustained it, but the woman died. ON MR.

These are thy honours not that here thy bust Is mixed with heroes, or with kings thy dust; But that the worthy and the good shall say, Striking their pensive bosoms--" Here lies Gay.' ON JAMES CRAGGS, Esq.., IN WESTMINSTER ABBEY JACOBUS CRAGGS REGI MAGN DEGREESE BRITANNIA A SECRETIS ET CONSILIIS SANCTIORIBUS, PRINCIPIS PARITER AC POPULI AMOR ET DELICL- I VIXIT TITULIS ET INVIDIA MAJOR ANNOS, HEU PAUCOS, XXXV. OB. FEB. XVI. MDCCXX. Statesman, yet friend to truth of soul sincere, In action faithful, and in honour clear Who broke no promise, served no private end, Who gained no title, and who lost no friend, Ennobled by himself, by all approved, Praised, wept, and honoured, by the Muse he loved. NOTES ODE ON SOLITUDE 1. "Having a vacant space here, 1 will fill it with a short Ode on Solitude (which I found yesterday by great accident, and which I find by the date was written when I was not twelve years old.)" Pope to Cromwell, ...
