Lines on Swifts Ancestors
Swift set up a plain monument to his grandfather, and also presented a cup to the church of Goodrich, or Gotheridge (in Herefordshire). He sent a pencilled elevation of the monument (a simple tablet) to Mrs. Howard, who returned it with the following lines, inscribed on the drawing by Pope. The paper is endorsed, in Swifts hand: Model of a monument for my grandfather, with Popes roguery. (Scotts Life of Swift.)
