But these are so few, that it is much to be lamented, that the poet has not yet met with an Addison, a Prior, a Pope, or a Swift, to do him justice in this respect.
The historical and explanatory notes are intended to clear up the historical parts of the poem, which have in a great measure been passed over in the former annotations.
And the reader, it is hoped, will better apprehend and relish the satire couched in this poem, when he is acquainted with the persons and transactions at which it is levelled.
