OF THE SAME.Mentula! masterest thou some thirty acres of grassland
Full told, forty of field soil; others are sized as the sea.
Why may he not surpass in his riches any a Crœsus
Who in his one domain owns such abundance of good,
Grasslands, arable fields, vast woods and forest and marish
Yonder to Boreal-bounds trenching on Ocean tide?
Great are indeed all these, but thou by far be the greatest,
Never a man, but a great Mentula of menacing might.
