After a good deal of disputing, it was determined to refer the matter to Dryden The proof was to consist in each writing an article on the first subject that presented it self. and the pieces of paper having been placed under the candlestick, Dryden was to draw them out and determine which was tho best. The three lords set to work, and while Rochester and Buckingham were exerting their brains to invent some sparkling epigram or hnppy turn of thought. Dorset was observed to write a few lines' carelesaly. and without the least hesitation.
