On the Correspondence between the King of Prussia and Voltaire

ON THE CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN THE KING OF PRUSSIA AND VOLTAIRE .

I F parts attract with gay surprize
A Nation's fascinated eyes;
'Tis here the vision is refin'd,
And sober taste corrects the mind;
Plucks the victorious Eagle's wing,
And strips a Robber in a King;
Detects the Meteor's wanton glare,
And makes a Fool of bright Voltaire .
