DOBINA

SILLA

Printed by S. and J. Collingwood, Oxford.

OF the following trifles, written at very different periods of the Author's life, some were attempted as translations, others as paraphrases only, or still more distant imitations of the poetry to which they refer : the very few original pieces are entirely occasional. He prints this small collection for private distribution among those who may perhaps attach to it, as a slight memorial of him, a value to which it has no other claim; and he requests of each of them, in the words of his favourite Flaminius, but with far more reason for the wish,

At tu quicquid id est ineptiarum
Ne prodire sinas in ora vulgi.

NUGAE METRICAE.
