WELLS;

IN THREE VOLUMES.

INCLUDING

HER CORRESPONDENCE WITH MAJOR TOPHAM,

&c. &c. &c.

VOL. II.

My soul abhors

The man, who breaks through Nature's sweetest laws;
Whose heart so callous to each tender tie,
So deaf to gratitude, to pity's sigh,
Can see that form he vilely has betray'd
Now pine in want, and never lend his aid.
Alas! much-injur'd, . .
gen'rous WELLS,
How oft on thee my thought with sorrow dwells!
Accept a tear---'t is all I can bestow---

....

That, and to hate the author of thy woe."

Vide ANTHONY PASQUIN'S "Pin-basket."

LONDON:

PRINTED FOR C. CHAPPLE, PALL-MALL,
OPPOSITE ST. JAMES'S-PALACE,

1811.
