Therefore, in patience rest, though I proceed ; There's no ill nature in the caseóbut need. Though for your use this water may not serve, I'd rather you should choke than I should starve.
LINES FROM WILLIAM COW PER,
THE POET, TO MRS. NEWTON.
Fish too dear, None must be bought
For us that are here.
No lobster on earth,
That ever I saw, To me would be worth
Sixpence a claw.
So, dear Madam, wait
Till fish can be got At a reasonable rate,
Whether lobster or not.
Till the French and the Dutch
Have quitted the seas, And then send as much
And as often as you please.
