So fam'd a Champion for the Loyal Church,
(So calld) to leave her, and her friends, i'th' Lurch !
Doctor, in short, you have amaz'd us all,
Making that Norling you Religion sall.
Had you comply'd at first, 't had been a Jeft,

And you no more to blame than were the rest ;
But after such mature Deliberation,
(Preaching up Loyalty in Spite oth Nation)
At last, to turn Apostate on a sudden,
Shews, tho' a Church-man, that you are no good One.
The senseless Book you have writ in your Defence,
Discovers more your Guilt than Innocence :
Each Argument therein does seem to say,
Your Reafor, with Religion, 's fled away.
N.w some pretend you tempted were by Woman,
Nay, by a Wife, which is a Thing not common,
To fin against the Laws Divine and Human :

Her Importunity was such, they fay,


did Preach, me never ceas'd do Pray; Until at length, by Force of much Perswaliong. She brought gorer Doctorship into the Fashion, To take an Oath, to justify the Reign Of William, 'till King James return d again. But, Do&tor, most believe what she could say, Had not prevailed to make you go Astray, And with the present Government to join, If little William had not pass'd the Boyn: But now you from your Principles do fwerve, For fear that you and yours fnou'd come to starve;. Trusting to Providence (it seems) your Sorel, But for your Body, you're not such a Fool. Doctor, in fine, you'll live to curse your Fate, And then repent, (alas !) when 'tis too late Reproachful Ruin fill such Crimes attends; Your Friends you've made your foes, your foes no Friends,
