By his obliged humble Servant, WILLIAM WOOLLETT.
From the Original Picture in the Possession of M.r Rob.t Ledger; :

Still let me pierce into the midnight depth
Of yonder Grove, of roildest largest growth:
That, forming high in air a woodland quire,
Nods o'er the mount beneath. At every step
Solemn, and slow, the shadows blacker fall,
And all is awful listening gloom around.

There are the haunts of Meditation, these
The scenes where ancient bards th'inspiring breath,
Extatic, felt; and, from this world retird
Thomson's Summer, line 516.

: Published as the Act directs,          4 June, 1778; by W.m Woollett; : Engraver to His Majesty, Charlotte Street, Rathbone Place, London.
