From an original Picture in the possession of E. M. Harrington, Esq.
SIR JOHN HARRINGTON was the godson of Queen Elizabeth, and son of John Harrington already mentioned. He has a cunning and somewhat vulgar look; and, indeed, his poetry has in it but little to make us forget his personal defects. His Muse had no alliance with royalty; nor do we trace in his eye any thing of the nobility of his blood. We should have guessed that his god was Hermes, and not Apollo.
