Thomas Amory : The Life of John Buncle

Dorothy Wordsworth to Catherine Clarkson, 14 August 1811: 'I have read nothing since I wrote to you except bits here and there and the Novel of John Bunkle - but I am going to set to and read - though I have still some sewing to do amongst mending the Bairns' cloaths.'

Century:      Reader/Listener/Group: Dorothy Wordsworth      Print: Book


Thomas Amory : The life of John Buncle

'It was in one of those cheerful moods that I one day took up The Life of John Buncle; and it is impossible for my friend to imagine with what eagerness and pleasure I read through the whole four volumes of this sensible pleasing work; it was wrote by the late Mr Amory of Wakefield, and I know not of any work more proper to be put into the hands of a poor ignorant bigotted superstititous methodist... In short I saw that true religion was no way incompatible with or an enemy to rational pleasures of any kind. ... I now also began to read with great pleasure the rational and moderate divines of all denominations.'

Century: 1700-1799     Reader/Listener/Group: James Lackington      Print: Book
