BOOK I. Ep. 40.

1 Is there, t' enroll amongst the friendly few,
2 Whose names pure faith and ancient fame renew?
[Page 288]
3 Is there, enrich'd with Virtue's honest store,
4 Deep vers'd in Latian and Athenian lore?
5 Is there, who right maintains and truth pursues,
6 Nor knows a wish that heaven can refuse?
7 Is there, who can on his great self depend?
8 Now let me die, but Harris is this friend.
