Rev. William Mason

Mary Russell Mitford to Sir William Elford, 24 December 1815; L'Estrange, Life of Mary Russell Mitford (1870) 1:248.



I must tell you that I have been reading Mason's Life and edition of Gray, with the most unmingled admiration of both authors. What poems, what letters, what biography! Oh, for more Masons and Grays!
