Judith Lomax’s Poem
TO MISS R******H,
On her presenting me Godwin’s St. Leon as a mark of Friendship.
An off’ring made at Friendship’s shrine,
Must ever sacred be;
Then know, sweet Girl! this pledge of thine,
Shall much be prized by me.
Yes, I will read it, o’er and o’er,
Marking the Moral page,
Which breathes like her whom I adore,
A language bright and Sage.
