Ann Candler, labouring-class poet of the late eighteenth century, was first noticed as a writer when her local clergyman gave charity to her needy family at Christmas and she wrote him a poem of thanks. To female patrons she wrote a letter explaining the circumstances of her life, which was printed with her poems.
