HERE lies poor NED PURDON, from mifery
Who long was a bookseller's hack;
He led fuch a damnable life in this world,
I don't think he'll wish to come back.
*This gentleman was educated at Trinity College, Dublin; but having wasted his patrimony, he enlisted as a foot foldier. Growing tired of that employment, he obtained his discharge, and became a fcribbler in the newfpapers. He translated Voltaire's HENRIADE.
GLORY O F HER SEX,
MRS. MARY BLAIZ E.
GOOD people all, with one accord,
Lament for madam Blaize,
The needy feldom pafs'd her door,
She ftrove the neighbourhood to please,
At church, in filks and fatins new,
Her love was fought, I do aver,
By twenty beaux and more ; The king himself has follow'd her,When he has walk'd before."
But now her wealth and finery fied,
Let us lament, in forrow fore,
For Kent-ftreet well may fay,
