Notes

Contains 'In imitation of Cowper', and 'An effusion of sorrow, in imitation of Dr. Young'. Mary Ward of Brixham, Devon, dedicates her book to the Countess of Loudon and Moira. Her subscritption list is a modest one, but she seems to have some link with Rathby Hall, the seat of Robert Carr Brackenbury.

Epigraph

At lustre or renown let others aim,
I only wish to please the gentle mind,
Whom nature’s charms inspire, and love of human kind.
 
BEATTIE’S MINSTREL.
