Dec. 3. At Ipswich, in an advanced age, Miss Clara Reeve, eldest daughter of the Rev. William Reeve, M.A. many years minister of St. Nicholas, in that town, and sister to the late Vice-admiral Reeve. Her first publication was a translation, from the Latin, of the fine old Romance, Barclay's Argenis, which made its appearance in 1772, in four duodecimo volumes, under the title of The Phoenix; or, The History of Polyarchus and Argenis. She next wrote The Champion of Virtue, a Gothic story, which was published in 1777, and was re-published in the following year, under the title it has ever since retained, viz. The old English Baron. Miss R. has since that time written The Two Mentors, a Modern Story; The Progress of Romance, through Times, Countries, and Manners, in a course of interesting and well-written evening conversations; The Exile; or, Memoirs of the Count de Cronstadt, the principle incidents of which are borrowed from a novel by M. D'Arnaud; The School for Widows, a novel; Plans of Education, with Remarks on the System of other Writers, in a duodecimo volume; and Memoirs of Sir Roger de Clarendon, a natural Son of Edward the Black Prince, with Anecdotes of many other eminent Persons of the Fourteenth Century, in duodecimo volumes. It is hardly necessary for us to add, concerning a writer so well known as Miss Reeve, that her works discover her to have cultivated useful knowledge with considerable success; and to have applied that knowledge less frivolously than is frequently the case with female Authors.
