1800 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

John Huddlestone Wynne

Thomas Percy to Andrew Caldwell, 25 September 1800; Nichols, Illustrations of the Literary History of the XVIII Century (1817-58) 8:29.



I do not remember that poor Huddleston Wynne behaved ill to the Duke of Northumberland. He dedicated to the Duke a very unsuccessful History of Ireland, in 2 vols. 8vo. for which the Duke made him a pecuniary present, with which he seemed satisfied, and more of him I do not now recollect.
