Divine Epigrams: On the Baptized Ethiopian

Let it no longer be a forlorn hope
  To wash an Ethiope;
  He's wash'd, his gloomy skin a peaceful shade,
  For his white soul is made;
  And now, I doubt not, the Eternal Dove
  A black-fac'd house will love.Credits and CopyrightTogether with the editors, the Department ofEnglish (University of Toronto), and the University of Toronto Press,the following individuals share copyright for the work that wentinto this edition:Screen Design (Electronic Edition): Sian Meikle (University ofToronto Library)Scanning: Sharine Leung (Centre for Computing in the Humanities)
