To the Right Honourable JOHN Lord Sommers,
Baron of Evesham.
T was your
LORDSHIP's Opinion and Encouragement that occasioned the
first appearing of this Poem in the Folio Edition, which from thence has been so well received, that notwithstanding the price of it was four Times greater than before, the sale increas'd double the number every year. The Work is now generally known and esteem'd; and I having the honour
a finaller Edition of it would be grateful to the world, immediately resoived upon printing it in this volume, of which I most humbly beg Your acceptance, from, My LORD, Your Lordship’s
ever obliged Servant.
