John Wilson Croker to John Murray, 18 July 1819: "I had Crabbe"s tales with me on shipboard, and they were a treasure. I never was so much taken with anything. The tales are in general so well conducted that, in prose, they would be interesting as mere stories; but to this are added such an admirable [italics]ease[end italics] and [italics]force[end italics] of diction, such good pleasantry, such high principles, such a strain of poetry, such a profundity of observation, and such a gaiety of illustration as I never before, I think, saw collected. He imagines his stories with the humour and truth of Chaucer, and tells them with the copious terseness of Dryden, and the tender and thoughtful simplicity of Cowper. There are sad exceptions here and there, which might easily be removed, but on the whole it is a delightful book."
