WALPOLE. One of the most agreeable, spirited and lively writers that this age has produced: with him, the Gentleman is never lost in the author: his Royal and Noble Authors is the best of his works, and is full of ingenuity and penetration: his Historic doubts shew, what a thorough master he is of the English history.
