JOSEPH TRAPP
English clergyman, poet, writer and pamphleteer
(1679 - 1747)

Our gracious monarch viewed with equal eye
  The wants of either university;
    Troops he to Oxford sent, well knowing why,
      That learned body wanted loyalty;
        But books to Cambridge sent, as well discerning
          That that right loyal body wanted learning.
      - another version of Joseph Trapp's epigram
        [Learning]

The King, observing with judicious eyes,
  The state of both his universities,
    To one he sent a regiment, for why?
      That learned body wanted loyalty;
        To the other he sent books, as well discerning,
          How much that loyal body wanted learning.
      - Epigram,
        on the donation of Bishop Ely's Library to Cambridge University by George I
        [Learning]
