Thomas Warton to James Merrick, 7 November 1768; Warton Correspondence, ed. Fairer (1995) 236.



When I consider the Advantages I received from you at Trinity College, which I remember with the greatest Gratitude, I am sure I should not quite Scores, was I to give you my whole Library, much less in lending you this fragment of a duodecimo volume, which however may perhaps contain all you want. All here are much Your's. To hear from you on the subject of Greek Literature will ever afford the greatest satisfaction to, Dear sir, Your most faithful and obliged Servant. T. Warton.
