**A most interesting Memorial of the Poet Gray, in which says Mr.
Mason "with the greatest judgment, and, what no man else probably
could have done, he has made the German Latin of Linnæus purely
classical." Joining in this commendation Mr. Mathias thinks "the
whole of these remarks should be printed." This work, forming lot 80
in the sale of Gray's Manuscripts, was purchased by Sir W. Tite for
£40 and was considered a very great bargain.
