Contemporary Reviews

Monthly Review, 2nd ser. 59 (July 1809): 319.

This production promises to class among the blue-winged ephemera of the year, and we will not seek to impede its feeble flitting among the gentle judges who may be disposed to bestow on it the sunshine of their smiles. The language is always modest, though sometimes ungrammatical; and the tale contains a prodigious number of fevers, together with several faintings, two duels, and one or two deaths.
