Misc. Comments

"The following alludes to a Notion receiv'd in Poland & other Countries, that some Persons, after they are dead & buried, have a Power of sucking the Blood of others till they dye; a consumptive Person is therefore said to be sucked by some Vampire: for so they call those who are supposed to have this Faculty."

Published in William Hayes's second book of 'Catches, Glees and Canons' (1765).
