Charles James.With conscience for thee-can reflection fear, [/] The villain whisper or the coxcombs sneer? [/] Secure within, it reeks not how without; [/] The bad mau censure, and the good my doubt: [/] Nor doubt, nor censure can a crime impart. [/] If virtue shield thee what is envy's dart? Vide Year. 1800.
