great patron, the Earl of Southampton ; the remainder, Mr. Gildon remarks, are evidently genuine ; there is not one that does not carry its author's mark and stamp upon it; not only the same manner of thinking, the same turn of thought, but even the same mode of dress and expression; the decompounds, his peculiar sort of epithets, which distinguish his from the verses of all his cotemporaries or succeffors.
