BY AVERY ALLYN, K. R.C. K. T. K. M. &c.

“Yes, ye vile race, for Hell's amusement given
Too mean for earth, yet claiming kin with Heaven!
Ye shall have mysteries-ay, precious stuff,
For knaves to thrive by-mysteries enough;
Dark tangled doctrines; dark as fraud can weave,
Which your blind votaries on trust receive,
While craftier feign belief till they believe.”
