PO E MS. It is affirmed by Sir John Hawkins, and denied by Mr. Boswell, that Mr. Savage is the Thales spoken of in line 2. The dispute is trivial. Dr. Johnson introduces a friend, whom he calls Thales, departing from London, because Juvenal describes his friend Umbricius departing from Rome.-L.
IN IMITATION OF THE
THIRD SATIRE OF JUVENAL.
WRITTEN IN 1738.
*Though grief and fondness in my breast rebel,
JUV, SAT. III.
-Ego vel Prochytam præpono Suburæ.
•While Thales waits the wherry that contains
Ere masquerades debauch'd, excise oppress'd, 9. Or English honour grew a standing jest.
A transient calm the happy scenes bestow,
Since worth, he cries, in these degenerate days
kind Heaven, to find some happier place,
repose, And safe in poverty defied his foes;
c Sed, dum tota domus rhedà componitur una, Substitit ad veteres arcus.
Hic tunc Umbritius : Quando artibus, inquit, honestis Nullus in urbe locus, nulla emolumenta laborum, Res hodie minor est, heri quam fuit, atque eadem cras Deteret exiguis aliquid ; proponimus illuc Ire, fatigatas ubi Dædalus exuit alas; Dum nova capities.
et pedibus me Porto meis, Rullo dextram subeunte bacillo.
