ORNAMENTED WITH A PORTRAIT OF ABRAHAM NEWLAND, ESQ.
NOTWITHSTANDING the ingenious comments of CRITO
on Cowley's lines :—
"A neighbouring wood born with himself he sees,
And loves his old contemporary trees."
he will find them all fruitless by consulting the original in Claudian:
"Ingentem mominit parvo qui germine quercum
Aquævumque videt consenuisse nemus."
It must, however, be admitted that the English Poet is superior to his original.
There is a voluptuousness, if not an obscenity, in SECUNDUS'S history of a Kiss, which prevents its admission into the Union. Magazine.
