Comment: A metaphrase solely from the French. Early translation work.
Date: This and the following brief pieces are what is left of her first attempt at dramatic poetry; I have placed them after the above three (as they are found in both 1713 Misc and 1903 Reynolds) so that the pieces appear in play's sequence.
