The Works of the Rev. Jonathan Swift/Volume 13/From Alexander Pope to John Boyle - 4

FROM MR. POPE TO THE EARL OF ORRERY.


TWITNAM, NOV. 7.

WHEN you get to Dublin (whither I direct this, supposing you will see our dear friend as soon as possible) pray put the dean in mind of me, and tell him I hope he received my last. Tell him how dearly I love him, and how greatly I honour him: how greatly I reflect on every testimony of his friendship; how much I resolved to give the best I can of my esteem for him to posterity; and assure him, the world has nothing in it I admire so much; nothing the loss of which I should regret so much, as his genius and his virtues.
