Evidence

[Pilkington tells of how she wrote poems for a Mr Worsdale to pass off as his own and reproduces the Song "Stella, Darling of the Muses"] "Mr Worsdale shewed this Ballad to Mr Pilkington, who thought proper to alter the last verse, giving it this prophane and nonsensical turn; Cou"d the Gods, in blest Condition, Aught on Earth with Envy view, Lovely Stella, their Ambition Wou"d be to resemble you. As for the Gods envying Mortals, and wishing to be like them, it has neither Sense, [italics] English [end italics], nor even Novelty to recommend it; nor is it agreeable to the Dictates of Reason or Religion; for even a Heathen Author stands condemned for setting [italics] Cato [end italics] in a Light superior to the Gods; but a Christian Divine may say any thing, and so much for an old song".
