    Who gave the ball, or paid the visit last;
    One speaks the glory of the British queen,
    And one describes a charming Indian screen;
    A third interprets motions, looks, and eyes;
    At every word a reputation dies.

Wherein thou liest in reputation sick;
And thou, too careless patient as thou art,
Committ'st thy anointed body to the cure
Of those physicians that first wounded thee.
