Manuscript versions of William Wordsworth's poems "Old Abbeys" and "Cranmer," likely written in the hand of his sister, Dorothy Wordsworth. The poems differ slightly from their published versions and include crossed-out verses and insertions, suggesting they may be drafts. Both of these poems were published in Wordsworth's Ecclesiastical Sketches. The sheet is attached to another piece of paper that contains annotations by Cornelius Patton.
