1764 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

George Colman

T. D., "Answer to the Epigram in our Paper of Saturday last, on seeing the Capricious Lovers dedicated to Mr. Colman" St. James's Chronicle (6 December 1764).



Why not inscribe to Colman, who has clear,
Thanks to old Bath, Nine Hundred Pounds a Year?
A Friend like Colman (which is something new)
May be a Poet and a Patron too.
