Lettering

A little learning is a dangerous thing, Drink deep or taste not the Pierian spring: There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain, And drinking largely sobers us again. Pope. ; Here bright eloquence does always smile, In such a choice yet unaffected style, As doth both knowledge & delight impart, The force of reason with ye flow'rs of art. Buckingham.
