[The reference relates to a work written by Ann Yearsley (1752-1806). Yearsley was a milk seller prior to being a poet, who suffered from poverty. Hannah More came across her and recognised her literary talents and organised for her poems to be published by subscription in 1785; see also HAM/1/6/6/2.] Fisher notes that he had taken the liberty to mention the 'subject to a certain great Lady' [presumably the Queen] but she had already been informed of the subject by Mary Delany.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dated at St James's [London].</p>
