A nine-page poem written to Charles Montague, Chancellor of the Exchequer. The outer margins of three leaves are trimmed closely, while the outer margins of the other three leaves are almost full, giving the impression that when the sheets were washed by Riviere, they trimmed away fraying or badly soiled edges on three margins.
