To the Honourable Mrs. Percival, with Hutcheson's Treatise on Beauty and Order.

1 Th' internal Senses painted here we see:
2 They're born in others, but they live in thee.
3 O were our Author with thy Converse blest,
4 Could he behold the Virtues, of thy Breast;
5 His needless Labours with Contempt he'd view;
6 And bid the World not read but copy you!
