Bp. Lewis Bagot

Once a Student, "Epigram" Gentleman's Magazine 65 (January 1795) 61.



Three Deans successively, one Sov'reign plac'd,
MARKHAM, BAGOT, JACKSON, have Science grac'd;
The First in dignity of style surpass'd;
The Next in elegance; in both the Last;
The fame of CHRIST-CHURCH can no farther go,
When in the Third she views the other Two.
