Sat, 23 Dec 1809. (2.3.7).
‘[Books published this day]’. 3v  15s. Boards.
Notes: ‘If to contain nothing which can alarm the delicacy or offend the piety of the reader, may constitute a novel unexceptionable, the history of Ned Bentley is entitled to the praise to which its author aspires. It is written throughout with much spirit, and contains many reflections which indicate a mind that is attentive to the truths and vicissitudes of life, and nicely observant of the varieties in the human feelings and character. The description of the hero’s youthful fortitude is very interesting, and the scene of recognition with his mother is affecting and natural’. Monthly Review, Sept. ‘We recommend this novel, not less for the many important moral truths which it contains, than for the spirit and interest which are kept up from the commencement to the very conclusion of the story’. Repository of Arts.
