Although we are very sensible, that in some of the following poems, the Ladies may refent certain satirical touches against the miltaken conduct in some of the fair sex: and, that some warm persons on the prevailing fide, may censure this Author, for not thinking in publick, matters exactly like themfelves : yet, we have been assured by feveral judicious and learned Gentlemen, that what the Author hath here writ, on either of those two subjects, hath no other aim than to reform the errors of both sexes. If the publick be right in its conjectures of the Author, nothing is better known in London, than that while he had credit at the court of Queen Anne, he employed so much of it in favour of Whigs in both kingdoms, that the Ministry used to rally him as the advocate of that party; for feveral of whom he got employments, and preserved others from lofing what they had : of which some instances remain even in this kingdom. Bea fides, he then writ and declared against the Pretender with equal zeal, though not with equal fury, as any of our modern Whigs; of which party he always professed himself to be as to politicks, as the reader will find in many parts of his works,

Our intentions were to print the poems according to the time they were writ in; but we could not do it fo exactly as we desired, because we could never get the least fatis, faction in that or many other circumstances from the Author.

Dublin, 1734.
