The Monodies of this writer upon his Wife and Child are well known. What other misfortunes he suffered besides their deaths, were occasioned by his own follies and vices.

His first poem was published under the name of W. Seymour.

An Evening Address to a Nightingalfy. * • -.

Not, like base worldlings, tutor'd to forego
The melancholy haunts of woe,

Thanks for thy sorrow-soothing strain :—

That oft enamour'd on thy strains has hung?
