A ministerial es!ate. He was the only person of his time, Who could cheat without the mask

of honesty. He retained his primævil meanness, When possessed of ten thousand a year; And having daily deserv'd the gibbet

for wbat he did Was at last condemned to it for what

he could not do.

Oh, indignant reader Think not his life useless to mankind ! Provider.ce permitied his execrable

designs,
To give to asier ages
A conspicuous proof and example,
Of how small estimation is exorbitant

In the sight of GOD;
By his bestowing it on
