When Dryden began to read ho seemed much jileased arid amused with the several pieces submitted, but at length reached one which evidently gave him extraordinary "satisfaction. Presently lie said that while lie had before him an abundance of;good, things the palm must be unhesitatingly assigned Lord Dorcet, whose composition both in; style and subject, revealed not only tho ossence, but. the quintessence of excel lent language, brief as it was, It ran: " I promise to pay John Dryden, Esq., or order, ?r on demand, the sum of five hundred pounds. 1 Dorset."
