Evidence

"I liked Milman"s books better than your scanty recommendation led me to expect- The gentleman is certainly a poet - he excells in description - the outlines of his pictures want charecter [sic] but his colouring is rich and brilliant, and on the whole his manner is very graceful - he fails sadly when he makes his personages speak and feel - however "the Bright City" is not without heart - the episode of Lilian and Vortimer is very natural and pathetic, and Rowena"s love is quite Byronical - I think if you have not read it, it is worth your time - How very presumptuous it is in me to attempt criticising such an Author as Milman!-"
