"...I tell you with sincerity that I think you have completely succeeded in what you intended to do. What is poetry may be disputed. These are poetry to me at least. They are concise, pithy and moving. Uniform as they are and unhistorify'd, I read them thro' at two sittings without one sensation approaching to tedium. I do not know that among you many kind presents of this nature this is my favoirte volume. the language is never lax, and there is a unnity of design and feeling: youwrote them 'with love' - I am particularly pleased with the 'Spiritual Law,' pages 34-5. It reminded me of Quarles, and Holy Mr. Herbert, as Izaak Walton calls him: the two best, if not only, of our devotional poets, tho' some prefer Watts and some 'Tom Moore." Charles Lamb in a letter to Bernard Barton February 7, 1826
