Wiessen : Lyrische Gedischte

To Miss Hunt, St Winifred's Dale, August 18 1793 'I admire the German you sent me extremely. I have read none since you left me, except two books of Dr Randolph's "Den Golden Spiegel", which is an imitation of an Eastern tale, by way of making dissertations upon government. It is entertaining and there is an account of a happy valley, that makes one long to live in it. The other book is Wiessen's Poems (Lyrische Gedischte) some of which are very pretty.'

Century: 1700-1799     Reader/Listener/Group: Elizabeth Smith      Print: Book
