Henry Kirke White : The Remains of Henry Kirke White

'Both John Harris and Mary Smith read the "Remains of Henry Kirke White" "with great delight", and Thomas Carter actually saved up a guinea to buy the book. It was, he said, "a large sum for one like myself to spend at one time in buying books: yet I had good reason to be satisfied; for the work was useful to me in the way of strengthening and confirming my habits of reading and observation".'
