The Works of the Rev. Jonathan Swift/Volume 8/An Inscription Intended For a Compartment in Dr. Swift's Monument

AN INSCRIPTION

INTENDED FOR A COMPARTMENT IN DR. SWIFT'S MONUMENT, DESIGNED BY CUNNINGHAM, ON COLLEGE GREEN, DUBLIN.


SAY, to the Drapier's vast unbounded fame,
What added honours can the sculptor give?
None. — 'Tis a sanction from the Drapier's name
Must bid the sculptor and his marble live.


June 4, 1765.
