CCCCLXXVI.

TO MISS PEEL: ON THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF HER INTENDED MARRIAGE WITH LORD VILLIERS.

You have a great name of your own,

By nature and reason endeared :
A name thro' the Universe known

Admired, beloved, and revered !

But since, under Hymen’s control,

That name you are destined to lose,
There is not in Heraldry's roll

A brighter than Villiers to choose.
But not on his title or birth

Alone, would your choice have been placed :
I am told of his talents and worth-

We have proof of his sense and his taste !
Of You, to yourself I suppress

How dearly your merits I prize!
But I may be allowed to confess

That I view you with Villiers' eyes.

May Heaven behold with its grace

A union that blends and secures
The splendour and fame of his race
Wiih the genius and virtues of yours !

The Right Hon. John Wilson Croker.

THE END.
