scene on the Dove is admirably lively and natural; and the fishing-house built for the accommodation of his friend and himself, on the banks of that river, and ornamented with the conjoined cyphers of their names, is a monument of elegant sensibility and friendship, honourable to them both. A wit defined angling to be a stick and a string, with a worm at one end and a fool at the other; and if, in our notice of this amusing volume, we may seem to have approached the opposite extreme, and to have shewn more respect to rural recreations than they may truly claim, be it remembered, that our observations have regarded them in a general point of view, as indicative of national character, rather than as, in themselves, objects of serious pursuit; and that we commend the work before us, for its style, its variety of information, and, above all, for its faithful portraiture of its amiable author, rather than from any desire to make proselytes to the fraternity of the angle. We close the volume with a conviction, in which we feel assured most of its readers will concur,
Minervam non minus in sylvis errare, quam Dianam.
