"Untainted with the blandishments of vice,
Which mark- the manners of the present age,
He sought and found the pearl of precious price
Which stands recorded in the sacred page.
Yet, spite of all that wisdom could impart,
And all the fervour of religious flame,
Grief poured a tide of anguish through his heart,
And shook the fabric of his mental frame."

SMITH, ELDER AND CO., CORNHILL.

1833.
