AUTHOR OF A LETTER TO THE REV. W. L. BOWLES, IN REPLY TO HIS LETTER TO
THOMAS CAMPBELL, ESQ. AND TO HIS TWO LETTERS TO THE RIGHT
HON. LORD BYRON, IN VINDICATION OF THEIR DEFENCE

OF THE POETICAL CHARACTER OF POPE.

First follow nature, and your judgment frame
By her just standard, which is still the same:
Unerring nature, still divinely bright,
One clear, unchanged, and universal light;
Life, force, and beauty, must to all impart,
At once the source, and end, and test of art.

Pope.

Natura fieret laudabile carmen an arte,
Quæsitum est: ego nunc studium sine divite vena,
Nec rude quid prosit video ingenium, alterius sic
Altera poscit opem res, et conjurat amicè.

TO

THOMAS CAMPBELL, Esq.

As an ardent admirer of that creative art which gives the most expansive scope to the refined perceptions of Taste, and the divine associations of Genius—that art in which you have so eminently excelled, and through which you have not only revived, but redeemed, the native spirit and chaste simplicity, the classic elegance and impassioned enthusiasm, of a more poetic and a happier age,-permit me to acknowledge the honour which I feel conferred upon me, in being permitted to prefix your name to the following work.

MARTIN MÅDERMOT.
