their country and be poorhe was for
several years the representative for Hull,
and is said to be the last instance of a
member receiving, according to ancient
practice, a stipend from his constitu-
ents : he was distinguished by his wit
and the force of his satire, but his
works being chiefly on controversial or
temporary subjects, are now little read,
though his recommendatory verses,
usually prefixed to Paradise Lost, still
keep his name before the public.
