MR. JOHN GOOSE, Formerly Parish Clerk of Swaffhamy *HO DIED ON SUNDAY,. TH&- 23D OF.

AVGUBT, 179.56 AGED:78 YEARS.
EARS fixty-five did honest John

His office fill with merit;
But now to realms above he's gone,

So peace be with his fpirit ! To cbant a favt, or chevy chace,

"To none (carce was he second ; Could make responses with a grace,

And was a loper reckond. A koli-day he thought divine,

A hely feaff lov'd dearly. Would oft partake of holy wine

Of holy water, rarely.

No:-fuch forbidden fruit I scorn to

touch; Game ne'er beneath my murd'ring gun

Thall fall : For vulgar tastes, such dainties are too

muchLet sportsmen, Lords and Commons,

grasp them all! Most rev'read senators, I greet you well :

Ye seem engag'd in deep and high debate; Sage as ye are, it is not hard to tell

Why long ye argue, and why fit so late. Some weighty business of Britannia's trade, Or rules of morals thus engage your

thought ; Some wholesome law will certainly be

made, Or reformation somewhere will be

wrought.

Thorack'd and crippled to an inch,

And to the gout a martyr, Ne'er from his bottle would he flinch, Or ever cry

for quarter.

Feafı days he kept throughout the year ;

And even to his lat day; But abftinence he deem'd severe,

Nor could endure a faf day. Tbe.liturgy he had by heart,

And could repeat the pfalter ! At chrift'nings too could play his part,

Nor e'er was known to faulter,

Britannia weeping tells mco" Laws of

game : “ What's legal flaughter of a bird or not ! " That band, who bear of senators the

name, • Determine when a partridge may

be fhot !"
