The Curll Miscellanies
II. Bishop Hough
 
A BISHOP, by his neighbors hated,
Has cause to wish himself translated;
But why should Hough desire translation,
Loved and esteem’d by all the nation?
Yet if it be the old man’s case,        5
I ’ll lay my life I know the place:
’T is where God sent some that adore him,
And whither Enoch went before him.
