The Beafts Confeffion to the Priest
Part of Horace. Ode IX. Book IV. ad-
To the Earl of PETERBOROW, who commanded the British forces in Spain.
Written in the Year 1706.
MORDANTO fills the trump of fame,
The chriftian world his deeds
claim, And prints are crowded with his name.
In journeys he out-rides the post, Sits up till midnight with his hoft, Talks politicks, and gives the toast.
Knows ev'ry prince in Europe's face, Flies like a fquib from place to place, And travels not, but runs a race.
From Paris gazette A-la-main, This day arriv'd without his train Mordanto in a week from Spain.
