I do not like thee, Dr. Fell. A correspondent of Notes and Queries says the author was Tom Brown, who wrote Dialogues of the Dead, and the person referred to was Dr. Fell, Dean of Christchurch (1625-1686), who expelled him, but said he would remit the sentence if he translated the thirty-third Epigram of Martial:
Non amo te, Zabidi, nec possum dicere quare; Hoc tantum possum dicere, non amo te.
I do not like thee, Dr. Fell, The reason why I cannot tell; But this I know, I know full well, I do not like thee, Dr. Fell.
