Amri

,

in the satire of Absalom and Achitophel, by Dryden and Tate, is designed for Heneage Finch, Earl of Nottingham and Lord Chancellor.

“Our list of nobles next let Amri grace,

Whose merits claimed the Abethdin’s (Lord Chancellor’s) high place—

To whom the double blessing does belong,

With Mosesʹ inspiration, Aaron’s tongue.”
