Rev. John Bidlake

Anonymous, Review of Bidlake, Poems; Poetical Register and Repository of Fugitive Poetry for 1803 (1805) 445.



These poems are simple and elegant. The author is a man of observation, and of respectable talent. His descriptive powers are above mediocrity. His sentiments are uniformly unexceptionable.
