Comments:
In The Gyldenstope Manuscript Miscellany (1967), Vieth points out an attribution by Alexander Pope ("probably by the Ld. Dorset") on his copy of A New Collection of Poems Relating to State Affairs (1705). See Benjamin Boyce, 'An Annotated Volume from Pope's Library', Notes & Queries 203 (1958), 55-57, and W. J. Cameron, 'Pope's Annotations on 'State-Affairs' Poems', Notes & Queries 203 (1958), 291-94. Vieth (1968): 234: 'Possibly by Charles Sackville'. POAS II (1965): 218: Dorset's possible authorship mentioned. Harris (1979): 190-9: unconvinced of Sackville's authorship.

Comments:
Vieth (1968): 234: Noted but omitted. Vieth rejects Rochester's authorship in The Gyldenstope Manuscript Miscellany (1967), pp. 361-65. POAS II (1965): 217-218: arguments for Rochester's authorship of some parts of the poem considered, though not accepted. Vivian de Sola Pinto is inclined to attribute parts of the poem to Rochester but evidence is "not very strong" (Poems by Rochester, pp. 230-31).
