1822 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

James Hogg

Walter Scott to John Murray, 1818; Smiles, in A Publisher and his Friends: Memoir of John Murray (1891) 2:5-6.



I send an article on our friend Hogg. It is too long and rather too dogmatical; but if you have room for it, it may do our poor friend some good, who really requires to have the public attention called to him now and then. Please to correspond on this subject with Mr. Grieve, to whom the article may be returned if it does not suit, or the consideration transmitted if it should find favour in Gifford's eyes. Remember me kindly to him.
