COMMISERATING EPISTLE

TO

JAMES LOW THER,

EARL OF LONSDALE AND LOWTHER,

LORD LIEUTENANT AND CUSTOS ROTULORUM OF THE COUNTIES

OF CUMBERLAND AND WESTMORELAND.

Quid sentire putas omnes, Calvine, recenti
De Scelere, et fidei violate Crimine? Sed nec
Tam tenuis Census tibi contigit, ut mediocris
Jactura te mergat Onus; nec rara ridemus
Quæ pateris: Casus multis hic cognitus, ac jam
Tritus, et è medio Fortunæ ductus acervo. JUVENAL.

What think'st thon, Lonsdale, that the World will say
Of this damn'd Verdict at Carlisle to-day?
Faith, simply this: “A Flea-bite, and that's all;
A loss that will not swallow Lowther Hall:
A trick of Fortune that we often find;
A trick that plainly proves the Goddess blind.

VOL. III.
