On The Death Of Dr. Swift by Himself
Note 4

The Medals were to be sent to the Dean in four Months, but she forgot them, or thought them too dear. The Dean, being in Ireland, sent Mrs. Howard a Piece of Indian Plad made in that Kingdom: which the Queen seeing took from her, and wore it herself, and sent to the Dean for as much as would cloath herself and Children, desiring he would send the Charge of it. He did the former. It cost thirty-five Pounds, but he said he would have nothing except the Medals. He was the Summer following in England, was treated as usual, and she being then Queen, the Dean was promised a Settlement in England, but returned as he went, and, instead of Favour or Medals, hath been ever since under her Majesty's Displeasure.
