Written at Camberwell, near London, in the Study of Mr. Wainwright
[ed.] "John Baron Wainwright (1698-1741) moved to Ireland in 1732; he was one of the Barons of the Exchequer." (Tucker [1992], 222) (AH)
, now Baron of the Exchequer in Ireland, where the Author accidentally din'd alone.

1 Whilst happily I pass my Hours
2 In Camberwell's delightful Bow'rs;
3 From thence the beauteous Walks survey;
4 Or thro' the fragrant Mazes stray;
5 Or o'er the Study cast my Eye,
6 Where Virgil, Coke, and Horace lie,
7 Just Emblem of a Bosom grac'd
8 With Law, and Elegance of Taste;
9 Apollo I invoke in vain,
10 Apollo answers with Disdain:
[Page 172]
11 "Mortal, you're here allow'd to roam.
12 "And bid to think yourself at home:
13 "O'er the Domesticks then preside;
14 "Let that content your Female Pride;
15 "In vain you call on me To-day;
16 "Here Wainwright only I obey.
