Amri

in the satire of Absalom and Achitophel, by Dryden and Tate, is designed for Heneage Finch, Earl of Notthingham and Lord Chancellor.

Our list of nobles next let Amri grace,
Whose merits claimed the Abethdin's (Lord Chancellor's) high place—
To whom the double blessing does belong,
With Moses' inspiration, Aaron's tongue.

Part ii.
