Little Packs become a Little Pediar

.

Little boats must keep near shore, larger ones may venture more.”

“Mainwaring is a clever justice—

In him, my lord, our only trust is—

Burdett’s a ratten meddler;

Volks shud turn round and see their backs,

And meend [mind] old proverbs: ‘Little packs,


Become a little pedlar.”


Peter Pindar: Middlesex Election, letter i.
