EPITAPH ON MRS. ANNE PRIDEAUX, DAUGHTER OF DR. PRIDEAUX, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Nature in this small volume was about
Last Line: Threw dust upon it, and shut up the book

SHE DIED AT THE AGE OF SIX YEARS.

NATURE in this small volume was about
To perfect what in woman was left out;
Yet fearful lest a piece so well begun
Might want preservatives, when she had done,
Ere she could finish what she undertook,
Threw dust upon it, and shut up the book
