THE PENLEN PUMP MAKERT
PO.ITICAL RECANTATION;

Or The WEEKLY PROCLAM TIUN of the
BELLMAN! Spoken by CHARLES FOX.

O YEZ! O YEZ! O YEZ! O YEZIO YEZ!

I'm now as you ee me, your Worthips and Glory,
The PENITENT PUMP-MAKER of SHOREDITCH
before ye

I'm forry the bubbub I caus'd fhou'd to day,

Take fuch a fad urn and go the wrong way:

Confin'd for a YEAR with HUNDRED Pound fac
Has made my new-fangl'd O inis decline,

My Politics now I renounce all as bid,

I'm fure I was foolish, I believe I was mad.

Ah me! thou TOM PAINE, I hope thou wilt fwing,

Or could 1 but ufe thee as I meant the KING,

Then I'd (harpen the AXE with an Edge like a Razor,
And utter my icis as great as a Caefar!

So I think the best way to atone for this Thing,

Is to take up the O fice of Bellman and ring;

The ONSTITU FIONAL MAG, and WONDER-
FUL TOO,

Are the best of this Seafon I can bring to your view,
For therein the Doctrine of FREEDOM is found,
Well brew'd and well hopp'd like old beer that is found;
Diffufing fuch Health and fuch Spirits throughout,
As make our country remarkably ftout.
And as Liquor unteno'd fill Sun fhine defies,
As well as the Thunder that rolls in the Skien,
So thofe in whom FREEDOM and loyalty's lay'd,
By Bribes are unwon and by Threats undifmay
True to their Country, let it fwim, Bak, or thrive,
They'd fooner than change, I am fure burn alives
But like four Small Beet viti.ted inclines,
The exotic notions bred in Foreign Winer;
This flopp'd up in vefiels too weak at the Head,
Has fore'd its way out and flunk as it fled;
But true freedom never mifchievously flies,
Th' afpiting locs fill warm as they rile;
For Freedom alike on allequally fmiles,

On the Lord at St. James as the Sweep at St. Giles;
But EQUALITY puff'd up too lately we find,
Is nothing but water bewitch'd wish the wind,
And fuch is the Frenchmen's free-thinking Liquor,
Tho' nxbing at firit feem'd clearer or quicker,
But true British Liberty, ftrong, found and clear;
We may justly compare to our flout English Beer;
The honeft old Farmer and Ploughman fo hale,
Scorna all other Liquor but their own native ale,
Well pleas'd with his ftate his Pot he takes up
And crisks to his KING, with an o'erflowing Cup.
Now bad I but fuck to the boring of Pipes,
And digging of Wells I had ne'er had the gripes,

Which thefe dama'd French brewings had fir'd in my
bowels,

When at Hackney I call'd up Hads, Spades, and Trowels

So now my good Mafters buy this Magazine,

It is the best I affare you, I ever have feen;

And the moft I can do to atone for my fault,

Is to caufe that fome Hundreds more of them be bought s
And God bleft us all while la praifes I fiag,

Down the Foes of Old England, up the Friend of the Kig
DING DONGWA bad Ne

MA

ADAM, there is an Italian proverb, which fays, that handsome girls are born married: The meaning whereof is not what hath been vulgarly fuppofed, that marriages are made in heaven: But, that fuch is the power of beauty over the human heart, that when they will they may. This being fo, the intimation to your ladyship, is to look out, and provide for a change of condition: To remain fingle, will not be long in your power, for beauty that strikes every eye, will neceffarily charm many hearts: Nature or dained its univerfal fway, and the corruptions of nature, multiplied as they have been through a feries of 5000 years, have even yet been able to give it but one rival: in the human heart (I fpeak it to their fhame) temples have been erected to the God of wealth: Many fair victims have we seen too bleeding at his altars; and, what is worfe, the very hand now writing to your ladyfhip, hath fometimes been the facrificer. What therefore you have to learn, is only to chuse with diferetion; to maintain with dignity the profered fovereignty which contending fuppliants will intreat you to accept."

"All the great heroes, the moft renowned in their gené rations, the fcripture worthies in particular, have had their Dalilahs, to whofe bewitching charms they have one and alf yielded: Reluctantly fome, and fondly others: Thefe proving their wisdom, and thofe their folly, fince there is no enchant VOL.
