FOUNDED ON

AMERICAN INCIDENTS AND CHARACTER.

Some unmark'd fibre, or some varying vein.
Shall only man be taken in the gross?
Grant but as many sorts of mind as moss.

Next, that he varies from himself no less :
Add nature's, custom's, reason's, passion's strife,

And all opinion's colours cast on life.”

Æsop--and Phædrusand the rest? Why not?--Cowper.
