Foxon (1975) gaat in tegen de mening van T.N. (Thomas Newcomb) in Scating (1720) dat Joseph Addison de auteur was.


Each now the Labour hardy to endure,

Who boast a steddy Strength, and Tread secure,

With panting Joy the frozen Kingdom gain,

Rush to the Shore, and hide the crackling Plain :

Now in long Tracks with failing Speed they shoot,

And tire unarm’d the Vigour of the Foot :

Now o’ver the Race in winding Circles wheel,

Drove round, and carried on their shining Steel.
