1826 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Alaric Alexander Watts

Jeremiah Holmes Wiffen to Alaric Alexander Watts, 22 January 1826; in Alaric Alfred Watts, Alaric Watts, a Narrative of his Life, by his Son (1884) 2:19.



Bowles writes me he is preparing a pamphlet that is to beat the vapourer in the Quarterly hollow, and grind him to atoms. "I have been most inadvertent," he says, towards Mr. Watts. I have some curiosity to see what kind of paper the Representative will be. I have little doubt that Murray will make it a good thing, or rather I should, perhaps, say, will make a good thing of it, which is not quite the same. All unite in love. I hope little Alfred continues to "prodigise."
