Excerpt from The Triumphs of Temper: A Poem, in Six Cantos

I have now very frankly informed my reader gf' the extent, or rather the extravagance of my difire; for I will not give it the ferions name of defign: whom an enlightened ta?e has ren dered thoroughly finfihle how very di?icult it nay? He to accomplz/h jitch an idea, will not only he the jirji to di/cern, hut the may? Ready to pardon tho/e errors, into'which fo hazardous an attempt may perhaps have hetrayed me. I had thoughts qf introducing this performance to the puhlic, hy a di/értation of confiderahle length on this jpecies of poetry; hut I forhear to indulge my/élf any farther in fiech preliminary remrhs, as the anxiety of authors is ? apt to produce, from the rt?efiion, that, however written, they add little or nothing to the ficccgfi of a good poem, and are utterly iwfidfilt to prevent that neglect.
