XIV. Another,

Quod comedo, poto, gigno, diris subjacet.
Millon, x. 728.

All that I eat or drink, or shall beget,
Is propagated curse.

Auspice te, fugiens alieni subcuba lecti
Dira libido hominum tota de gente repulsa est ;
Ac tantum gregibus pecudum ratione carentum
Imperat, et sine lege tori furibunda vagatur.
Auspice te, quam jura probant, rectumque piumque,
Filius atque pater, fraterque innotuit; et quot
Vincula vicini sociarunt sanguinis, a te

Nominibus didicere suam distinguere gentem, This pretended to be a quotation from Staphorstius, but really taken from Hoy's translation of Paradise Lost, iv. 753.

By thee adult'rous lust &c.

XVI.. Interpolation in Staphorstius,

Te primum, et medium, et summum, sed fine carentem. Milton, v. 165.

Him first, him last, him midst, and without end.


-Tu, Psychephone!
Hypocrisis esto; hoc sub Francisci pallio,
Quo tutò tecti sese credunt emori.

The last line interpolated in Fox, to beget some resemblance to Milton, iii. 478.

And they who to be sure of Paradise

Dying put on the weeds of Dominic,
Or in Franciscan think to pass disguis d.


Interpolation in Fletcher,

In promptu causa est: superest invicta voluntas,

Immortale odium, vindictæ et sæva cupido. Milton, i. 105.

-What though the field be lost ?
All is not lost; th' unconquerable will,
And study of revenge, immortal hate,
And courage never to submit or yield.

XIX. This line in Milton,

Thrones, Dominations, Princedoms, Virtues, Pow'rs, is said to be taken from the title-page of Heywood's Hierarchy of Angels, Throni, Dominationes, Principatus, Virtutes, Potestates. But the words in Heywood's title are thus, Seraphim, Cherubim, Throni, Potestates, Angeli, Archangeli, Principatus, Dominationes.
