Σελίδα 218 - He had also begun another Epilogue, directed against female gamesters, of which he himself repeated a couplet or two to Mr. Rogers a short time before his death, and of which there remain some few scattered traces among his papers : — " A night of fretful passion may consume, All that thou hast of beauty's gentle bloom, And one distemper/d hour of sordid fear Print on thy brow the wrinkles of a year.
