Not illustrated. 1781 edition. Excerpt: ...modern criticks pafs Till both their want of fenfe betray'd, One hooting while the other bray'd. Near Blackal his fam'd rival lay, But frowning lean'd another way, His forehead into wrinkles drawn To sit within the fmell of lawn, But clofe as to his elm the vine Round pious Baiter feems to twine, Adores the faint on bended knees That taught him sirst to cant and pleafe, And to the wond'ring world reveal Good Christian methods to rebel. J Bilhop of Exeter from 1707 to 1716. While Milton's foaring fancy flies, And lings of feuds above the skies, Dreadfully sills the heav'nly plain With vanquifhed pow'rs and cherubs slain, 9S5 Surpris'd and trembling from afar We fcarce behold th' immortal war; Their falehions formidably bright, Their fwords compos'd of beaten light, And beamy arms with dreadful blaze 99- From each contending van amaze, With dread we view th' apostate foe Plung'd in the deep abyfs below.
