EPIGRAM ADDRESSED TO THE AUTHOR OF THE NOTE ON THE FOLLOWING LINES OF POPE.

"Let modest FOSTER, if he will, excel
" Ten Metropolitans in preaching well. "
1 WHILE Wisdom shines with light divine,
2 Whate'er SCURRILITY may say,
3 Good FOSTER's name shall ne'er decline:
4 Then cease, vain cur, the Moon to bay.
