By virtue of the authority in Us vested by the Aft for subjecting Poets to the power of a licenser, We have revised this piece; where finding the style and appellation of King to have been given to a certain
pretender, pseudo-poet, or phantom, of the name of TIBBALD; and apprehending the same may be deemed in some fort a reflection on Majesty', or at least an insult on that legal authority which has bestowed on another person the Crown of Poesy: We have ordered the said pretender, pseudopoet, or phantom utterly to vanish and evaporate out of this work: And do declare the said throne of poesy from henceforth to be abdicated and vacant, unless duly and lawfully supplied by the LauRÉATE himself.' And it is hereby enacted, That no other person do presume to fill the fame.
