Remember, when I see Mr. William Thompson, to inquire whether he has printed in any of his works any other character of our old poets than those of Spenser and Shakspeare; and to get the liberty of a visit at Kentish Town, to see his collection of Robert Greene's Works, in about four large volumes quarto. He commonly published a pamphlet every term, as his acquaintance Tom Nash informs us.
