[ocr errors][ocr errors]

To the RIGHT HONOURABLE the

EARL of MIDDLESEX.

My LORD,

TH

HE Critics will, undoubtedly, expect, when they fee your Name prefixed to this Volume, that I fhould address your Lordship, as the Judge of Science, and the hereditary Patron of learned Men; but I fhall takę the Liberty of disappointing them, having, as I prefume, a stronger and more natural Claim to your Protection from a lucky Accident, than from any real Excellence I can pretend to, either as a Writer or a Scholar.

This lucky Accident, my Lord, is the Honour (I had almost faid Merit) of being born within a few Miles of your Lordship; and tho' I have too much Diffidence to ask your Pa

tronage

tronage as a Poet, I have Affurance enough to demand it as a Man of Kent.

I shall not imitate, in this Dedication (if fuch an homely Epistle may aspire to fo polite a Name) the Conduct of moft modern Authors, who are always particularly fulfome, at the very Time they, with the utmost Solemnity, protest against Flattery-----What I fincerely believe of you I have faid already, and you will find it in the introductory Ode on Good-nature, which I beg Leave, in an efpecial Manner, not only to inscribe, but to apply to the Earl of Middlesex.

I am,

my Lord,

with the utmost Respect, Your Lordship's most obedient, and moft obliged humble Servant,

CHRISTOPHER Smart.
