Absalom & Achitophel
Note by A Milnes to As A Writer a chapter of The Life Of Dryden

The object of this poem was to secure the condemnation of Shaftesbury, who was accused of being one of those who instigated Monmouth to aspire to the Crown. This object was not attained, the grand jury threw out the bill, and a medal was struck to commemorate the event. Of this medal we hear again.
