Abstract:

Commonplace book kept by Francis Hawes between about 1720 and 1760, collecting both poetical miscellany as well as recipes for medical remedies. Poetical excerpts include works by well-known authors such as Pope, Sheridan and Ramsay, along with many other bawdy and political poems, either anonymous or by Hawes himself. Some of these political verses are quite topical, treating events like the execution of John Byng and the corruption of Sir Robert Walpole. There is also an extemporaneous poem perhaps composed by the young Frances Hawes (later, the infamous Viscountess Vane) to an uncle departing from the family home at Purley Hall. It does not seem likely based on other clues in the volume that the compiler of this volume was her father Francis Hawes, a director of the South Seas Company, but was perhaps a cousin by the same name. The medical remedies and prescriptions mostly consist of guidelines and recipes from the famous Dr. George Cheyne of Bath who apparently treated Hawes in the 1730s, as well as other recommendations from various doctors and friends.
