1762 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. Charles Churchill

Anonymous, "To Mr. Churchill, on his publishing the Third Book of the Ghost" St. James's Chronicle (28 October 1762).



Your bold nervous Verse doth vindictively aim
To patronize Virtue, and drag Vice to Shame.
Still the same Path pursue — all the Spirit adore;
For whoe'er saw a GHOST with such SUBSTANCE before.
