Francis T. Palgrave, ed. (1824–1897). The Golden Treasury.  1875.
 
J. Milton
 
LXXXV. To the Lady Margaret Ley
 
DAUGHTER to that good Earl, once President 
  Of England's Council and her Treasury, 
  Who lived in both, unstain'd with gold or fee, 
And left them both, more in himself content, 
Till the sad breaking of that Parliament         5
  Broke him, as that dishonest victory 
  At Chæroneia, fatal to liberty, 
Kill'd with report that old man eloquent;— 
Though later born than to have known the days 
  Wherein your father flourish'd, yet by you,  10
Madam, methinks I see him living yet; 
So well your words his noble virtues praise, 
  That all both judge you to relate them true, 
And to possess them, honour'd Margaret.
