Excerpt from The Poetical Works of Henry Kirke White
I received a letter informing me of his [kirke White's] death last autumn. It gave me a sort of shock, because I always expected great things from the proof he had given of very superior powers, and in replying to this lett... er, I asked if there were any intention of publishing anything he might have left, and offered to give an opinion upon his papers, and look them over. Down came a box-full, the sight of which Literally made my heart ache, and my eyes over¿ow; for never did I behold such proofs of human industry. To make short, I took the matter up with interest, collected his letters, and have, at the expense of more time than such a poor fellow as myself can well afford, done what his family are very grate ful for, and what I think the world will thank me for too; of course I have done it gratuitously.
