having served as an escort, the double iron gates are thrown open, the avenue is penetrated, and these august visitors are admitted with due magnificence. But where resides this ceremonious family? The title page tells us that these splendid cognitæ inhabit the Terra Incognita of Lincolnshire. On looking to the narrative, we observe that the last set of horses was taken at Brigg, or Briggs, a name which we suppose was not sufficiently refined and delicate for the modest ears of the fair authoress, and therefore it being out of her power to designate the situation by its proximity to one of the most respectable provincial towns, she christens the retreat with a new name, and leaves her readers to discover their old acquaintance as they can. The whole of this production is, from the beginning to the end, an affectation of meanings never meant, and feelings never felt; and although the letters are professedly written for the improvement of youth, they can neither impart instruction nor entertainment to those of any period of life. We ought not to omit to observe that this work is embellished with a plate, which the lady calls a representation of “Julian Bower, Alkborough Hill, Lincolnshire.” From what romantic fancy she or any other person may have denominated it a bower we cannot devise, but the simple account we have of it in Russell is this : “ At Alkborough there is still a small square intrenchment or camp, now called Countess Close, from a Countess of Warwick who it is said lived there, or owned the estate." This lady should know that there are two requisites in an author above all other things important to be correct, and to be intelligible.
