Ten entire pages are occupied by her Pious Observations, and most of the margins have been similarly utilized. The volume passed from the libraries of Drs. Burton and Bliss into that of C. J. Wyatt, who was Vicar of Forest Hill, near Oxford, the birthplace of Mary Powell, who is responsible for the attribution of the MS. notes to Milton's aunt by marriage.
