1735 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Alexander Pope

Anonymous, "Saving Advice to E. C—l. Occasion'd by his advertising a 3d Vol. of Letters" Grub-Street Journal (7 August 1735).



C—L, let me advise you whatever betides,
To let this third Volume alone;
The Second's sufficient for all our backsides,
So pray keep the Third for your own.
