Evidence

"I think I have scarce ever read Two better Lines than Mr POPE"s Epitaph on this Prince of Philosophers [Newton; she then quotes the lines] His Inscription on Sir [italics] Godfrey Kneller"s [end italics] Monument is as remarkably bad as this is excellent. [She quotes 8 lines] And bad as it is, "tis but a lean Translation from the [italics] Italian [end italics], an enervate Language, well adapted to the soft Warblers of it, but incapable of manly Strength, Dignity or Grace."
