V for this verse it refers to Llewellyn.
There are very matches he doesn't do well in. (sic perhaps few was intended?)

|Whatman board 183 x 269 mm with label 2532 ((2 1). Loose deteriorating sheet with the only copy of the couplet. The image shows two filled pinholes 30 mm from L and 20 mm R. There is a line of marks (not foxing) at the top, and the lower R corner has been compressed|
