Excerpt from Essays and Thoughts on Various Subjects, and From Various Authors, &C: Together With Nine Papers From the Olla Podrida, and Poems

Oh, I have seen (nor hope perhaps in vain, Ere life go down, to see such sights again) A vet'ran warrior in the Christian field, Who never saw the sword he could not wield; Grave without dulness, learned without pride, Exact yet not precise, tho' meek keen-ey'd st man that would have foil'd, at their own play, A dozen would-he's of the modern day Who, when occasion justified its use.
