EXTEMPORE. ON A Drawing of the Countess of HERTFORD's, now Duchess of SOMERSET.

1 This piece to latest times when shown,
2 Hertford, shall dignify your own;
3 Where as a visitor you came,
4 Just shew'd yourself, and left your name.
5 So, Prior says, some years ago,
6 Apelles left his name at Co.
7 Learn hence, ye Nymphs of Britain's isle,
8 How Hertford writes, and mark her style.
