TALENTIN E.

t EASE to persuade, my loving Protheus; Home-keeping youth have ever homely wits;

Were't not affection chains thy tender days To the sweet glances of thy honoured love, 1 rather would intreat thy company, To see the wonders of the world abroad, Than (living dully sluggardized at home) Wear out thy youth with shapeless idleness,

(1) Mr Pope has observed, that the style of this comedy is less figurative, and more natural and unaffected than the greater part of our Author's plays, though supposed to be one of the firft he wrote. I must observe too, that as I take it to be one of his very worst, it happens to be freelt front accidentat corruptions of the editors : wbich is the reason that my Notes are fewer on this, than on any one of liis. other pieces.
