Junius Discovered

MR. ROGERS was requested by Lady Holland to ask Sir Philip Francis

whether he was the author of Junius. The poet approached the knight,

Will you, Sir Philip,--will your kindness excuse my addressing to you a

single question?--At your peril, sir! was the harsh and the laconic

answer. The intimidated bard retreated to his friends, who eagerly asked

him the result of his application. I don't know, he answered, whether

he is Junius; but, if he be, he is certainly Junius Brutus.
