“A masquerade, a murdered peer,

His throat just cut from ear to ear –

A rake turned hermit – a fond maid

Run mad, by some false loon betrayed –

These stores supply the female pen,

Which writes them o’er and o’er again,

And readers likewise may be found

To circulate them round and round.” Mary Alcock 1742 – 98 A Receipt for Writing A Novel
