Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


Eight times emerging from the flood,
She mew’d to every watery god,
Some speedy aid to send.
No Dolphin came, no Nereid stirr’d,
Nor cruel Tom, nor Susan heard,
A favourite has no friend!
Gray.—On a Favourite Cat drowned, Verse 6.
