THE LIFE

OF

WILLIAM COWPER, ESQ.

COMPILED

FROM HIS CORRESPONDENCE,

AND OTHER

AUTHENTIC SOURCES OF INFORMATION:

CONTAINING

REMARKS ON HIS WRITINGS, AND ON THE PECULIARITIES

OF HIS INTERESTING CHARACTER,

NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED.

BY THOMAS TAYLOR.

“Untainted with the blandishments of vice,
Which mark the manners of the present age,
He sought and found the pearl of precious price
Which stands recorded in the sacred page.
Yet, spite of all that wisdom could impart,
And all the fervor of religious flame,
Grief poured a tide of anguish through his heart,
And shook the fabric of his mental frame."

SECOND AMERICAN, FROM THE THIRD LONDON EDITION.

PHILADELPHIA:
KEY & BIDDLE, 23 MINOR STREET.
