1751 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Rev. John Upton

Thomas Edwards to Samuel Richardson, 19 June 1751; Correspondence of Samuel Richardson, ed. Barbauld (1804) 3:23.



I am obliged to Mr. Upton for his letter to Mr. West, and beg you to return him my thanks for it. By that pamphlet, and from what I hear passed the other day between Mr. Upton and Mr. Brindley's man, I think it is plain he is about an edition; and if Mr. West, who is so good a judge and so fine an imitator of Spenser, will oversee it, I cannot but think it will be a good one.
