1806 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Samuel Whyte

James Grant Raymond, in Life of Thomas Dermody (1806) 1:98n.



This amiable character is master of the English grammar, mathematic, and classic school, in Grafton-street, Dublin. He is the author of many useful and admired works; and is in that country universally known, respected, and admired. He was the valued associate of the late Mr. Sheridan; and in that gentleman's wreck of fortune and hour of adversity, when in others kindness fled and esteem grew cold, he remained his firm and unaltered friend. Many of the present most eminent characters of the Irish nation have, in their juvenile days, been under his care and tuition: and Dermody within his friendly and hospitable habitation received many tender remarks of affection and regard.
