         ADVICE

              TO THE

         AUTHOR

            Of a LATE

          POEM,

            ENTITULED,

   The Britiſh Court.

FOR ſhame give or'e,
And Write no more,                   
Nor Beauty's name Prophane.

Your flattering Lines,             
And Partial Rhimes,
Fires us with juſt diſdain.

Suppoſe ſome Stranger Walk'd the Mall,
And ask'd his Friend would pleaſe to tell,
Thoſe you ſay Grace the Court.

And fee but half, of whom you boaſt,
He'd brag the Britiſh Beauty loft,
And make our Fame his ſport.

For who would think,
That Pen and Ink,
In the fame Verſe could join,

Sad painted Frills,
And awkard things,
With Churchill's ſacred Line.
