1797 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

William Jackson of Exeter

William Seward, "On finding some lines of Dr. Warton set to Music by Mr. Jackson of Exeter, to a young Lady" Whitehall Evening Post (11 November 1797).



What though from fam'd WARTON Music's aid implores,
And his sweet lays melodious JACKSON pours,
Her native skies the Maid to quit disdains,
Till lovely P— breathes her tuneful strains.
