Ultimus Romanorum

So Horace Walpole was preposterously called. (1717-1797.) (See Last Of The Romans.)

Carlyle so called Dr. Johnson, but he might, with greater propriety, be termed “the last of the Catos.” (1709-1784.)

Pope called Congreve “Ultimus Romanorum.” (1670-1729.) (See Last Of The Romans.)
