The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 29

Neil's Duke for a Day

Neil's Duke for a Day.

(These are the salient thoughts of this vol.)

I should fire their damp and sputt'ring souls
With a spark of mine own rage.
A juggler! look !
And with as many following at his heels
As though he were a new Demos-thenes.
In your mouth!
You bear a sword, might strike forth fire from stones—

The moral of this piece is—A beggar on horseback who can bear, even for a day?
