F. A. B. VIII.

The story of Accetes has abundance of nature in all the parts of it, as well in the description of his own parentage and employment, as in that of the sailors charaćters and manners. But the short speeches scattered up and down in it, which make the Latin very natural, cannot appear so well in our language, which is much more stubborn and umpliant; and therefore are but as so many rubs in the story, that are still turning the narration out of its proper course. The transformation at the latter end is wonderfully beautiful.
