Comments:
On p. 123, note regarding Volume III of Poetical Calendar series: "The Monthly Reviewers having taken upon them to assert, that we plundered the poem called the Kite, from the Gent. Mag. This is to assure the Public, that assertion is false and malicious. The Editors of the Poetical Calendar and possessed of three early editions of that poem; the first is printed in the year 1719.. the second at Oxford in 1722. and the third is in a collection of poems called the Flower-piece, printed in 1731. from which we copied it. What fine criticisms may the world expect from such ignorant and malevolent writers!" On p. 124, Contents.
