[First poem taken down for its note]
The Eagle and the Robin*, An Apologue; translated from the Original of Æsop, written Two Thousand years since, and now rendered in familiar Verse by H.G. L. Mag.(1)
* The political moral of this little apologue is too evident to need any other comment, than barely mentioning that the lady was Queen Anne; desiring the reader to recollect the change which she made in her ministry in 1709, the year in which this poem was written; and referring to Dr. King's "Ruf[s?]inus, or the Favourite," in the English Poets, vol XX.p. 367 N [iii.1]

Bibliotheca, or the Modern Library. By the same. 19 [Poem actually written by Thomas Newcomb; full title, the same as here:] Bibliotheca: A Poem. Occasoned by the sight of a Modern Library. With some very useful episodes, and digressions. [It is catalogued in Foxon N246, and is on ETC Reel 2076, no. 07; also at the Newberry (see notebook 1, p. 51). It is a long, iii.19-74, description of all the books in a "Doctor's" library, published originally in 1712. I wonder if it is in Dryden? Nichols attributes it to King, but says it is anonymous;] The poem is on many accounts worth preserving; and if it is not Dr. King's, it is at least not by an inferior writer. N
