Adriel

,

in Dryden’s Absalom and Achitophel, is meant for the Earl of Mulgrave.

Sharp-judging Adriel, the musesʹ friend,

Himself a muse: in Sanbedrim’s debate

True to his prince, but not a slave of state;

Whom David’s love with honours did adorn,

That from his disobedient son were torn.”


Part I.
