Dr. Trail set out for London about a month ago. He expects to meet you in England in the course of the summer. At the time of his departure we exchanged a note or two concerning Ritson's Preliminary Dissertation to his Metrical Romances, which contains a repetition of the gross and unmannerly abuse of the Editor of the Reliques. My indignation against this wretched man was the greater, that I heard him, in this house, speak of Warton, and of you particularly, in a placable and penitential way, which gave one reason to think that he would make his "amende honourable" the first opportunity. Besides, you nobly made him an offer of your Romances. Mr. Brougham has reprimanded him severely for the folly and wickedness of his attack.
