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


Too poor for a bribe, and too proud t’ importune,
He had not the method of making a fortune;
Could love and could hate, so was thought something odd;
No very great wit, he believ’d in a God;
A post or a pension he did not desire,
But left church and state to Charles Townshend and squire.
Gray.—Of Himself.
