BETWEEN THE ENTRIES FOR 29 AND 30 JULY THERE IS A SONG, WRITTEN OUT IN HANDWRITING WHICH APPEARS TO BE THAT OF LEWIS MORRIS [see entries 1 and 12 July 1738 for comparison].
The Birks of Endermay.
The smiling morn
the breathing Spring Invite the tunefull birds to sing &
while they warble from Each sprey Love melts ye universal Lay .
Let us amanda timely wife Like them Improve the Hour that flies and in Soft raptures
wast the day among the birks of Endermay .
