Notes There is little evidence that Reverend Dodd wrote this chapbook other than his sponsorship of the Magdalene Charity Hospital. Frontispiece engraving by S. Sharpe and entitled, “I was weeping over my Child, who frighted at my Agonies, was more clamorous in his Grief, hung around my Neck & screamed he knew not why.”
