There is, perhaps, no author who has received so much attention from critics, and in whose works there are nevertheless so many passages respecting the true interpretation of which there is a great diversity of opinion. In these cases, the present editor has not hesitated to affix that which has appeared to him to be the true sense; but has at the same time generally directed attention to other interpretations, leaving it to the judgment of the intelligent teacher to adopt the one which shall seem to him to rest upon the most solid foundation.
NEWPORT, R. I., January 1st, 1850.
Q. HORATII FLACCI
MAECENAS atavis edite regibus,
Evitata rotis palmaque nobilis
Terrarum dominos evehit ad Deos.
Nunquam dimoveas, ut trabe Cypria
Multos castra juvant, et lituo tubae
JAM satis terris nivis atque dirae
Terruit gentes, grave ne rediret
Seculum Pyrrhae nova monstra questae,
Omne quum Proteus pecus egit altos
Piscium et summa genus haesit ulmo,
Vidimus flavum Tiberim, retortis
Iliae dum se nimium querenti
