"the Verses written by Bentley upon Learning & publish"d in Dodsley"s Miscellanies - how like they are to Evelyn"s Verses on Virtue published in Dryden"s Miscellanies! yet I do not suppose them a Plagiarisme; old Bentley would have scorned such Tricks, besides what passed once between myself and Mr Johnson should cure me of Suspicion in these Cases. We had then some thoughts of giving a Translation of Boethius, and I used now & then to shew him the Verses I had made towards the Work: in the Ode with the Story of Orpheus in it - beginning ""felix qui potuit &c"" he altered some of my Verses to these which he [italics] thought [end italics] his own.
