Hawkesworth, adieu! thou most ingenuous mind,
Firm friend to truth, in wisdom's school refin'd!
Great was thy praise in learning to excel,
But greater far the praise of living well:
Great was thy pow'r the vicious to controul,
But boundless thy benevolence of soul:
Belov'd by all — to virtue's precepts true,
Thou lively, cheerful, social friend, adieu!
