A GOOD-NATURED HUSBAND.
WHEN the Greeks were raising forces against Troy, they sent Ambassadors to Poltis King of Thrace, to desire his assistance. Be enquired the cause of the war; and was told, it was the injury Paris had done Menelaus, in taking his wife from him. "If that be all, said the good King, let me accommodate the difference. Indeed it is not just the Greek Prince should lose a wife; and on the other side it is a pity the Trojan should want one. Now, I have two wives; and, to prevent all this mischief, I will send one of them to Menelaus and the other to Paris." It is a shame says Mr. Pope, in his notes on the ninth book of the Iliad, this story is so little known, and that poor Poltis yet remains uncelebrated. I cannot but recommend him says he, to the modern Poets.

very contemptible, and very much despised. A liar is hated by God and despised
by men. A liar it not to be trusted.
