On the Dutchess of Newcastle's
[ed.] "Henrietta daughter of the Earl of Godolphin and related to the Churchill family." (Tucker [1992], 213) (AH)
Picture.

1 Say, Worsdeal, where you learn'd the Art
2 To paint the Goodness of the Heart
3 The flatt'ring Teint let others prize;
4 You call the Soul into the Eyes:
5 There we the various Virtues trace
6 Of Churchil's, and Godolphin's Race.
7 Thrice happy Pelham, to whose Arms
8 Were destin'd never-fading Charms!
Written at Tunbridge-Wells, July 1730.
