pale with envy lies,
Ready to burft, he raves, he cries; Knits in a noose the fatal string,
Seeks a high bough on which to fwing. 'Tis not my fame this rage has rais'd,
That through the world I'm read, and prais'd:
Shining in TURKY wrought with gold'
In every nation spread my name,
Which e'er has heard GREAT BRITAIN'S fame.
I lie fecure from fummers heats;
obtain may he
Those things, and more, he envies me:
A house and garden near the town
In profitable pomp and pride,
With plants and fruits incompafs'd ride;
And to the crowd, each market-day,
His learning and his wit display.

Who've the companion known, and tried the friend:
This offering accept for friendftip's fake,
By J. A. an intimate friend of the deceased.

VERSES by Mr. POPE, to the Memory of an unfortunate Lady murdered.
10 peaceful refts, without a ftone, a name, What once had beauty, titles, wealth and fame. How lov'd, how honour'd once avails thee not, To whom related, or by whom begot. A heap of duft alone remains of thee; "Tis all thou art, and all the proud shall be.

Lately infcrib'd on a Beautiful Monument erected at MAIDEN BRADLEY in the County of WILTS, as follows.
NDER this marble are depofited the remains
as added luftre to his noble ancestry, commanded reverence from his cotemporaries, and ftands the fairest pattern to posterity:
Being often call'd to council,and always chofen in parliament, (a friend to his prince, a fervant to his country) he advised the king with freedom, the fenate with dignity.
That the bulwark of the ENGLISH liberty,
his vigour a champion for its privileges:
His manhood faw the church and monarchy restored,
