Excerpt from The Genuine Remains of Ossian, Literally Translated: With a Preliminary Dissertation
Soon after his arrival, he wrote Mr maclagan, acknow ledging the receipt of some Gaelic poems, and desiring him to send any other pieces he could. In this letter, dated 16th Janu... ary, he says I have been lucky enough to lay my hands on a pretty complete poem, and truly epic, concerning F ingal. The antiquity Of it is easily ascertain ed; and it is not only superior to anything in that language, but reckoned not inferior to the more polite performances Of other nations in that way. I have some thoughts of pub liebing the original, if it will not clog the work too much.
