To the Right Honourable the EARL of CHESTERFIELD, on his being installed Knight of the GARTER.

1 THese trophies, STANHOPE, of the lovely dame,
2 Once the bright object of a monarch's flame,
3 Who with such just propriety can wear,
4 As thou, the darling of the gay and fair?
5 See ev'ry friend to wit, politeness, love,
6 With one consent thy sovereign's choice approve!
7 And liv'd PLANTAGENET her voice to join,
8 Herself, and GARTER, both were surely thine.
