A REPLY

TO AN

“ Unsentimental Sort of Critic,”

The Reviewer of " Spence's Anecdotesin the

Quarterly Review for October 1820;

OTHERWISE TO A

CERTAIN CRITIC AND GROCER,

The LONGINUS of " IN-DOOR” NATURE.

BY

One of the Family of the BOWLESES!!

[blocks in formation]

If“ NATURE,” as the Reviewer asserts, be a term which the “ Family of the

Bowleses” have been TWO THOUSAND YEARS EXPLAINING ; “ the mole-
“ eyed “ Family” of THE CRITICAL FUDGES” have been as long shutting
their eyes to that which is as clear as the SUN AT NOON-DAY!

THE following pages were hastily written, on the perusal of the fifth article in the Quarterly Review for October.

Their subject, I have reason to believe, will be noticed more at large by the Editor of Pope, in the next number of the Pamphleteer ;' in the mean time I think I have proved hon futile some of the critic's observations are, how disingenuous is his mode of reasoning, and how little pretension such a writer has to accuse Mr. Bowles of want of candour, who has himself shewn so little !

To the NOBLEMEN and GENTLEMEN

who are in the habit of frequenting the Reading-Room of the Publisher of the Quarterly Review, in Albemarle-Street.

MY LORDS AND GENTLEMEN,

0 N the morning when the Quarterly Review

comes out, the new volume, in shining covers, of the fairest whity-brown paper, is placed before you, on a large table covered with neat green baize. The polished ivory cutter lies on the baize, ready to your hand : methinks I see you put on your spectacles, and prepare to partake the long-expected treat. I will say nothing of the complacent looks of Mr. Murray, who on this day appears more courteous than usual. You have taken your chairs; and having cut open some of the leaves, and reading as you go, you will come to an article entitled “SPENCE's Anecdotes." You will there find many unfounded charges made, and much railing and raving uttered, against a late Editor of the Works of POPE.
