1768 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Sir Joseph Mawbey

B., "To Sir Joseph Mawbey ... on his presenting the Petition of Mr. Wilkes to his Majesty" Public Advertiser (12 December 1768).



MAWBEY, the Muse's Glory and her Pride,
How great to take the injur'd Patriot's Side!
Congenial Souls shall catch the Flame from Thee,
And Senates glow for WILKES and LIBERTY!
