Notes:

Cupid is watching a Frenchman practice his archery, shooting arrows at a heart on a pole.

I think [the French] arrogant bunglers; and, in truth, the worst set of marks-men that ever tried cupid’s patience.

To think of making love by sentiments! I should as soon think of making a genteel suit of clothes our of remnants; and to do it, pop, at first sight, by declaration, is submitting the offer, and themselves with it, to be sifted with all their pours and contres by an unheated mind. (p. 44)
