1774 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

John Campbell

Horace Walpole to William Mason, 7 April 1774; Letters, ed. Cunningham (1906) 6:73.



Campbell's book [A political survey of Britain] I have not looked into, and am told is very heavy. Thus I have given you an account of my reading as my confessor in literature. I know of nothing else, and am happy to have time for thinking of my amusement.
