Satire on political and religious controversy under Queen Anne, with an elegantly dressed young lady sitting writing at a table on which is an inkwell. On the wall behind her are portraits of Charles I and Queen Anne, and opposite are shelves of books, at which she looks eagerly, including "Ch[ristian] Catechism", "L[ife] of K[ing] Ch[arles]", "Try[al] of K[ing] Ch[arles], "Holy Bible", "[Bayly] Pract[ice] of Piety", "S[acheverell's] Ser[mon] Pr[eached] at Darby", "S[acheverell's] Ser[mon] Pr[eached] at St Pauls", "Artic[les] of Ch[urch] of E[ngland]", "[Allestree] Wh[ole] Duty of Man", "B[oo]k of Martyrs", and "Com[mon] Prayer". 1709
