APPENDICES

APPENDIX A

The following lines are taken from Lord Holland's verses 'To a lady on her Birthday, Florence, March 25, 1795.'1

When twice twelve times the rolling earth
Brought back the period of her birth,
Thus to the Genius of the day
A certain Dame was heard to pray:
'Give me, indulgent Genius, give
'Midst learned cabinets to live,
'Midst curiosities, collections,
Specimens, medals, and dissections,
With books of every tongue and land
All difficult to understand,
With instruments of various sorts,
Telescopes, air pumps, tubes, retorts,
With friends, fair wisdom to pursue,
Fontana, Macie, Blagden, Drew.'

. . . . .

Such are thy wishes, but if kind
The Gods, and of a mortal's mind,
These sacrifices they will spare,
And long preserve you what you are
And when obdurate time besprinkles
Your head with grey, your face with wrinkles,
When sickness and when age shall come
And wither transient beauty's bloom,
Still shall the beauties of your mind,
By reading and by time refin'd,
Still shall thy wit and polish'd ease
In spite of fickle nature please;
