Note 1

This Epilogue, given to Bishop Percy by Goldsmith, was first printed at p. 82, vol. ii. of the Miscellaneous Works of 1801. It was written with intent to conciliate the rival claims of Mrs. Bulkley and Miss Catley, the former of whom wished to speak, the latter to sing, the Epilogue. (See Cradock's Memoirs, 1826,i. 225.)
