1741: John Oldmixon
But dare such miscreants now rush abroad,
By blanket, cane, pump, pillory unaw'd?
Dare they imp falshood thus and plume her wings,
From present characters and recent things?
Yes what untruths? or truths in what disguise?
What Boyers and what Oldmixons arise?
What facts from all but them and slander screen'd?
Here meets a council, no where else conven'd.
There from originals come, thick as spawn,
Letters ne'er wrote, memorials never drawn;
To secret conf'rence never held they yoke,
Treaties ne'er plan'd, and speeches never spoke.
From, Oldmixon, thy brow, too well we know,
Like sin from Satan's, far and wide they go....
