EPITAPH on General WOLFE
EPITAPH on GENERAL WOLFE
In worth exceeding, and in virtue great,
Words would want force his actions to relate.
Silence, ye bards! eulogisms vain forbear,
It is enough to say that WOLFE lies here.
EPIGRAM on the EPITAPHS for General WOLFE. By the same.
The muse, a shameless mercenary jade!
Has now assum'd the arch-tongued lawyer's trade:
In WOLFE's deserving praises silent she,
Till flatter'd with the prospect of a fee.
