1822 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

George Colman the Younger

Anonymous, "Impromptu, on observing Mr. Colman, by command, standing behind his Majesty in the Royal Box on Friday last" The Sun (22 May 1822).



GEORGE COLMAN was properly here in his station,
When standing so near to the Head of the Nation,
For in Loyalty's Cause he will ne'er be found slack,
But will always be ready his SOVEREIGN "to back."

* Mr. COLMAN holds an official situation at Court.
