ANECDOTES

OF

LITERATURE, &c.

MANY readers, I presume, will be pleased with the following specimens of Songs, which occur in various rare Plays in the Garrick Collection.

Few, if any, of these are to be found in the Collections of Songs which have been compiled by Dalrymple, Aikin, Ellis, Ritson, and others. Many seem well worth preserving, and from the extreme and increasing rarity of the works from which they are taken, are little likely to be presented to the inspection of the common reader. Nevertheless, I have not inserted them from my own judgment only. Many intelligent friends have thought with me, that they would form an acceptable portion of the work.

SONG,

Let us sip, and let it slip

And go which way it will a;
Let us trip, and let us skip,

And let us drink our fill a.
