1807 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

John Taylor Esq.

Edward Jerningham, "To John Taylor, Esq." John Taylor, Records of my Life (1832) 1:167.



Unvaried friend, through many a varying year,
Indulge the voice that courts religion's muse,
Nor thou (to virtue as to science dear)
Thy candid audience to my theme refuse.
EDWARD JERNINGHAM.
