Medal reversed
Note by A Milnes to As A Writer a chapter of The Life Of Dryden

This was not by Settle, but by Pordage. It was, like the other answer by the same hand, moderate in its tone. The full title was 'The Medal Reversed, a Satire against Persecution. ' This must not be confounded with 'The Medal of John Bayes,' by Shadwell, a brutal attack on Dryden which had not even cleverness to recommend it.
