Poem of the day
Town Eclogues: Tuesday; St. James's Coffee-House
by Lady Mary Wortley Montagu
SILLIANDER and PATCH.

Wondrous to tell, and hard to be believ'd,
Oh ! H---- D, to my lays attention lend,
Hear how two lovers boastingly contend ;
Like thee successful, such their bloomy youth,
Renown'd alike for gallantry and truth.
