The case of Mrs. CLIVE

(1744)

Introduction by

RICHARD C. FRUSHELL

To

H.T.  Swedenberg, Junior

founder, protector, friend

    He that delights to Plant and Set,
    Makes After-Ages in his Debt.

    Where could they find another formed so fit,
    To poise, with solid sense, a sprightly wit? 
    Were these both wanting, as they both abound,
    Where could so firm integrity be found?

The verse and emblem are from George Wither, A Collection of Emblems, Ancient and Modern (London, 1635), illustration xxxv, page 35.

The lines of poetry (123-126) are from “To My Honoured Kinsman John Driden,” in John Dryden, The Works of John Dryden, ed.  Sir Walter Scott, rev. and corr.  George Saintsbury (Edinburgh:  William Patterson, 1885), xi, 78.
