    'The following Impromptu was produced on the Question, If any comparison could be drawn between the person alluded to, and any heavenly body. As in a borrow'd light the moon we see; / So shines the wretch in borrow'd infamy; / Castle's [a government spy] his hellish-sun .. his orb of day, / Reflects his rays, and is a—Castle-ray'.
