EPIGRAM IN BEHALF OF MR. SOUTHERNE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Argyle his praise, when southerne wrote
Last Line: They'll fit no man alive.
Subject(s): Southerne, Thomas (1660-1746); Southern, Thomas


Argyle his Praise, when Southerne wrote,
First struck out this, and then that Thought;
Said this was Flatt'ry, that a Fault.
How shall your Bard contrive?

My Lord, consider what you do,
He'll lose his Pains and Verses too;
For if these Praises fit not You,
They'll fit no Man alive.
