ing over-neat becomes à Slattern, is 'most certainly in Love.

I shall make use of this Gentleman's Skill as I see Occasion, and since I am got upon the Subject of Love, shall conclude this paper with a Copy of Verses which were lately sent me by an uns known Hand, as I look upon them to be above the ordinary Run of Sonne

THE Author tells me they were written in one of his despairing Fits; and I find entertains fome Hope that his Mistress may pity such a Passion as he has described, before she knows that she is herself Corinna.


Conceal, fond Man, conceal the mighty Smart,

Nor tell Corinna she has fir'd thy Heart. In vain would'st thou complain, in vain pretend To ask a Pity which he must not lend, She's too much thy Superior to comply, And too too fair to let thy Pallion dye. Languis in Secret, and with dumb Surprize Drink the refiftless. Glances of her Eyes. At awful Distance entertain thy Grief, Be still in Pain, but never ask Relief. Ne'er tempt her Scorn of thy consuming State; Be any way undone, but fly ber Hate.


Thou must submit to see thy Charmer bless Some happier Youth that fall admire her lefs; Who in that lovely Form, that Heav'nly Mind, Shall miss ten thousand Beauties thou could/

Who with low Fancy fall approach her Charms,
While half enjoy'd be finks into his Arms.
She knows not, must not know, thy nobler Fire,
Whom foe, and whom the Muses do inspire;
Her Image only mall ty Breast employ,
And fill thy captiv'd Soul with Shades of Foy;
Direet thy Dreams by Night, thy Thoughts by

And never, never, from thy Bofom stray.


To the Fifteenth Volume.
