DIALOGUES

Concerning

ELOQUENCE

. IN GENERAL;
And particularly, that Kind which is
fit for the PULPIT:

Clear's and improve's whate'er it shines upon :
It gilds all Objets, but it alters none.

Mr. Pope's Effay on Criticism.

All I can say, without the Appearance of Vanity, is, that I was afraid it shou'd fall into worse Hands.
