Octavia Walsh


A few religious poems by Octavia Welsh were posthumously published in Poems upon Divine and Moral Subjects. Original and Translations. By Dr Patrick and other eminent hands (London, 1719). Otherwise a corpus of her poems is known only from her as yet unpublished poetical notebook (*WaO 1). One other manuscript of verse and prose writings by her was recorded in 1962 (WaO 2) but is at present untraced.
