LORD STAIR
English author
(1648 - 1707)

L'Abbe de Ville proposed a toast,
  His master, as the rising Sun:
    Reisbach then gave the Empress Queen,
      As the bright moon and much praise won.
        The Earl of Stair, whose turn next came,
          Gave for his toast his own King Will,
            As Joshua the sun of Nun,
              Who made both Sun and Moon stand still.
      - a metrical version of his toast, from the "Anecdote Library", 1822
        [Toasts]
