DANIEL'S OPINION OF THE PROFESSION OF THE LAW.

Here is Domine Picklock
My man of Law, sollicits all my causes,
Follows my business, makes and compounds my quarrels
Between my tenants and me; sows all my strifes
And reaps them too, troubles the country for me,
And vexes any neighbour that I please.

MORE CONCERNING BELLS.

So long, they're out of tune, and out of frame;

They seem not now the same.
Put them in frame anew, and once begin
To tune them so, that they may chime all in.
