The authorship of this text is disputed. Many critics have thought that Cary's daughter, Anne wrote it, but two critics, Heather Wolfe and Marion Wynne-Davies have proved that Anne is not the author. Both argue that Lucy, another daughter, is the author, but as neither Wolfe nor Wynne-Davies have published their work, the issue remains uncertain. It may be a family effort, as there is writing in the hand of other family members in the margins of the text.
