AND

A HISTORY OF

THE MANNERS, CUSTOMS; AND AMUSEMENTS, SUPERSTITIONS,

BY NATHAN DRAKE, M.D.

AUTHOR OF LITERARY HOURS," AND OF "ESSAYS ON PERIODICAL LITERATURE."

On the tip of his subduing tongue
All kind of arguments and question deep,
All replication prompt, and reason strong,
For his advantage still did wake and sleep:
To make the weeper laugh, the laugher weep,
He had the dialect and different skill,
Catching all passions in his craft of will;
That he did in the general bosom reign
Of young, of old; and sexes both enchanted.

The very age and body of the time, his form and pressure.

SHAKSPEARE.
