[Gentlemen.] GRANT me one favor, I ask no more, Examine all my writings o'er; Not forgetting all the time Tis hard to make a name to rhyme. Let those who think they can compose Excellent verse as well as prose, Make one effort to be wise, Ere they scoff and criticise Numerous works they would revise.
