Vicar Of Bray
by William Hazlitt

Hero of an anonymous eighteenth-century song: the vicar is a timeserving parson, a trimmer, who boasts that he has accommodated himself to the religious views prevalent in different reigns, of Charles, James, William, Anne, and George: no matter 'whatsoever king may reign', he will remain Vicar of Bray.
