The poetical works of James Thomson with his last corrections and improvements. In two volumes. With the Life of the Author. From the Royal Quarto Edition of 1762. He wants no advocate his cause to plead; You will yourselves be patrons of the dead. No party his benevolence confin'd, No sect-alike it flow'd to all mankind. - Such was the Man-The Poet well you know; Oft' has he touch'd your hearts with tender Woe:-For his chaste Muse employ'd her heav'n-taught lyre, None but the noblest passions to inspire: Not one immoral, one corrupted thought, One line which, dying, he could wish to blot. - Prol. to Coriol
