As the bard once said in a few lines to Captain Riddell (upon returning a newspaper he had borrowed) ...
"My goose-quill too rude is
To tell all your goodness
Bestow'd on your servant, the Poet;
Would to God I had one
Like a beam of the sun,
And then all the world, sir, should know it!"
Perhaps he was foreseeing the Internet?
