Not illustrated. 1895 edition. Excerpt: ...fiammat amor. 1 Lauder's preface to Musae Sacrae, p. vi., and Epigram, p. lxxiv. of same. In Gardyne's Garden there is an English poem in honour of " Mr. J. Lesl.," who can be no other. 13. OF ORKNEY. George Graeme, or Graham, minister at Scoone, afterward Bishop of Dumblane (Row's H. of Ch., p. 255; Grub, passim), was one of the three bishops who submitted to the Glasgow Assembly of 1638. When I look to thy person, Graham, what a poor mortal thou art! When I look to the lofty pinnacles of thy mind, what a Titan thou appearest! 13. ORCADUM. Dum corpus tueor, quantillus homuncio, Grami, es? Ardua dum mentis culmina, quantus Atlas? CXVI. TO MR. RICHARD MAITLAND.

I can offer only words with no worth, accents of no weight and "numbers" whereof the banker makes no account. Accept, as an old friend from another, a trifle in poor return for thy guerdon. Thy present, I remember, was both of corn and wine: I bring thee only waters from Pierian spring. Exchanging pawkily my poor brass for thy gold, I fulfil the r6le of Diomed, thou of the lavish Glaucus. P CXVI. AD D. RICHARDUM METELLANUM. Aurea dent alii, quae, more
