Not illustrated. 1836 edition. Excerpt: ... read his lectures, so admired at home, Historic lectures, where he loved to mix His free plain hints on modern politics: Here, he had heard, that numbers had design, Their business finish'd, to sit down and dine; This gave him pleasure, for he judged it right To show by day that he could speak at night. Rash the design--for he perceived, too late, Not one approving friend beside him sate; The greater number, whom he traced around, Were men in black, and he conceived they fiwn'd. " I will not speak," he thought; "no pearls of mine " Shall be presented to this, herd of swine;" Not this avail'd him, when he cast his eye On Justice Bolt; he could not fight, nor fly: He saw a man to whom he gave the pain, Which now he felt must be return'd again; His conscience told him with what keen delight He, at that time, enjoy 'd a stranger's fright; That stranger now befriended--he alone, For all his insult, friendless, to atone; Now he could feel it cruel that a heart Should be distress'd, and none to take its part; " Though one by one," said Pride, " I would defy "'Much greater men, yet meeting every eye, " I do confess a fear--but he will pass me by " Vain hope! the Justice saw the foe's distress, With exultation he could not suppress; He felt the fish was hook'd--and so forbore, In playful spite, to draw it to the shore. Hammond look'd round again; but none were near, With friendly smile to still his growing fear; But all above him seem'd a solemn row Of priests and deacons, so they seem'd below; He wonder'd who his right-hand man might be--Vicar of Holt cum Uppingham was he; And who the man of that dark frown possess'd--Rector of Bradley and of Barton-west; " A pluralist," he growl'd--but check'd the word, That warfare might not, by his zeal, be stirr'd....
