Anonymous, in "Catalogue of the most celebrated Writers" Letters concerning the present State of England (1772) 382.



LOWTH. One of the most learned writers and the best critics of this age. His first work, and which gained him great reputation, was the De Sacra Poesi Hebraeorum, 1753. He was advanced to the mitre by the present king, and ranks therein among the men whose merit has been rewarded in this age.
