PREFATORY ADDRESS.

DIRECTION.

T. Mistress Sangster, now at number eight,
'Tis by the new St. Luke's that's built of late,
At Old Street end you'll find the dame's abode,
In Winkworth’s Buildings, on the City Road.

APOLOGY.

I HOPE, dear madam, you will not be vex’d,
Because you find your name to this affix’d;
'Tis sent by way of grateful recompence,
But not design’d to give the least offence.

I trust your name is in the book of life;
Nor have I us'd it here to gender strife :
Take not this freedom in the least unkind,
The poem's sent to entertain your mind.

The subject matter is a work of grace,
Which on a saint in days of old took place;
The sex, a woman, and her stature great;
And to her sex these lines I dedicate.
