Favourite of the Muses,
He was led by them to every elegant Art :.
• Refined in Taste,
. And fraught with Graces all his own..?
In various kinds of Poetry:
Superior to many,
Inferior to none.
His Works continue to inspire
What his Example taught :
Contempt of Folly, however adorn’d;
Detestation of Vice, however dignified;
Reverence for Virtue, however disgraced.
CHARLES and CATHARINE,
: Duke and Dutchess of Queensberry,
Who lov'd this excellent Person Living,
And Regret him Dead,
Have caus'd this Monument to be erected
To his Memory.
