1791 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. Timothy Dwight

William Cowper to James Cogswell, 15 June 1791; Southey, Life and Works of Cowper (1835-37) 7:32.



I return you my thanks, Sir, for the volumes you sent me, two of which I have read with pleasure, Mr. Edwards's book and the Conquest of Canaan. The rest I have not had time to read, except Dr. Dwight's Sermon, which pleased me almost more than any that I have either seen or heard.
