To the RIGHT HONOURABLE the

EARL of MIDDLESEX.

My LORD,

T

HE Critics will, undoubtedly, expect, when they see your Name prefixed to

this Volume, that I should address your Lordship, as the Judge of Science, and the hereditary Patron of learned Men; but I shall take the Liberty of disappointing them, having, as I presume, a stronger and more natural Claim to your Protection from a lucky Accident, than from any real Excellence I can pretend to, either as a Writer or a Scholar.

This lucky Accident, my Lord, is the Honour (I had almost said Merit) of being born within a few Miles of your Lordship; and tho’ I have too much Diffidence to ask your Pa

tronage

tronage as a Poet, I have Assurance enough to demand it as a Man of Kent.

I shall not imitate, in this Dedication (if such an homely Epistle may aspire to so polite a Name) the Conduct of most modern Authors, who are always particularly fulsome, at the very Time they, with the utmost Solemnity, protest against Flattery-----What I sincerely believe of you I have said already, and you will find it in the introductory Ode on Good-nature, which I beg Leave, in an especial Manner, not only to infcribe, but to apply to the Earl of Middlesex.

I am,

my Lord,

with the utmost Respect,

Your Lordship’s most obedient,
and most obliged humble Servant,

CHRISTOPHER SMART.
