Evidence

"I shewed him some verses on Lichfield by Miss Seward, which I had that day received from her, and had the pleasure to hear him approve of them. He confirmed to me the truth of a high compliment which I had been told he had paid to that lady, when she mentioned to him ""The Colombiade"", an epick poem, by Madame du Boccage:--""Madam, there is not any thing equal to your description of the sea round the North Pole, in your Ode on the death of Captain Cook""."
