Argyle (2 syl.)

—of whom Thomson says, in his Autumn (928–30)—

“On thee, Argyle,


Her hope, her stay, her darling, and her boast,

Thy fond, imploring country turns her eye—”

was John, the great duke, who lived only two years after he succeeded to the dukedom. Pope (Ep. Sat. ii. 86, 87) says—


“Argyle the state’s whole thunder born to wield,

And shake alike the senate and the field.”
