Barron Field

Charles Lamb to Barron Field, 16 August 1820; Works of Charles Lamb, ed. Lucas (1903-05) 542-43.



We received you Australian First Fruits, of which I shall say nothing here, but refer you to **** [Charles Lamb] of the Examiner, who speaks our mind on all political subjects. I can only assure you that both Coleridge and Wordsworth, and also C. Lloyd, who has lately reappeared in the poetical horizon, were hugely taken with your Kangaroo.
