1764 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. Christopher Pitt

Joseph Warton to Joseph Spence, 15 January 1764; Spence, Anecdotes, ed. Singer (1820) 472-73.



Mr. Lowth desires me to inclose a packet to you — I wish our excellent friend, Mr. Pitt's pieces had appeared in better Company, and in a more honourable Collection [than the Oxford Sausage (1764)]. Mr. Lowth tells me you had thoughts of spending a few Days with Him at Winchester; which would have given much pleasure to many persons here, but to none more, than,
Dear Sir,
to you obliged and affectionate
humble Servant
Jos. Warton.
