Excerpt from Poems, Essays, and Sketches: With a Memoir
British Review. M. Dekker had, it seems, disposed of the Copy right of the work to a gentleman of high reputation in the country, himself a gifted author, who found a publisher for the then unknown writer; but the Offence glven by some personal attacks contained in it, and the sensation it had made, caused the owner of the manuscript to refuse allowing a second edition, and a court of law ruled in his favour. Mr. Thomson's trans lation of the work is very happily executed, and it is to be re gretted that it did not come before the English public. The prescribed limits of these pages preclude our giving any ade quate extract from it.
