"Mrs. Thrale disputed with him on the merit of Prior. He attacked him powerfully ; said he wrote of love like a man who had never felt it: his love verses were college verses; and he repeated the song ""Alexis shunn"d his fellow swains,"" &c. in so ludicrous a manner, as to make us all wonder how any one could have been pleased with such fantastical stuff. Mrs. Thrale stood to her gun with great courage, in defence of amorons ditties, which Johnson despised, till he at last silenced her by saying, ""My dear Lady, talk no more of this. Nonsense can be defended but by nonsense."" Mrs. Thrale then praised Garrick"s talents for light gay poetry ; and, as a specimen, repeated his song in ""Florizel and Perdita,"" and dwelt with peculiar pleasure on this line: ""I"d smile with the simple, and feed with the poor."""
