Survey'd the gay Patrician's titled train,
Their various merit scann'd with eye severe,
Nor learn'd to know the peasant from the peer:
At length the Gothic ignorance is o'er,
And vulgar brows shall scowl on LORDS no more;
Commons shall shrink at each ennobled nod,
And ev'ry lordling shine a demigod:

How high the Peerage, and themselves how low.
Illustrious Chief, your eloquence divine
Shall raise the whole right
