On A Late Edition Of Sir Jonah Barrington's Memoirs

Fortune, pleased with Jonah's wit,
Chose an ass to edit it ;
Not that as with many a she,
Fools with her in favour be,
But that wit like lamps by night
Placed by dulness shines more bright :
So, great Y____g, she pitched on you,
As the dullest pate she knew.
