The EXTENT of COOKERY.

Aliusque et Idem.
[ed.] Horace, Carmen Saeculare 1, l. 10. (AH)
1 WHEN Tom to Cambridge first was sent,
2 A plain brown bob he wore;
3 Read much, and look'd as tho' he meant
4 To be a fop no more.
[Page 55]
5 See him to Lincoln's-Inn repair,
6 His resolution flag;
7 He cherishes a length of hair,
8 And tucks it in a bag.
9 Nor Coke nor Salkield he regards,
10 But gets into the house;
11 And soon a judge's rank rewards
12 His pliant votes and bows.
13 Adieu ye bobs! ye bags give place!
14 Full-bottoms come instead!
15 Good Lord! to see the various ways
16 Of dressing a Calve's head!
