1802 An Elegy to the Memory of the Late Duke of Bedford
Critical Review, series 2, 36 (Dec.1802): 475-6.


This is the most respectable tribute that has yet been offered to the memory of one so universally and deservedly lamented. We copy the concluding lines.[quotes from 'But ye who, wrapt in fruitless  grief ... Bedford in youth expires, the full of days.']

[note: reviews also An Elegy, on his Grace Francis, the late Duke of Bedford by Thomas Rodd, remarking "These rhymes are of common magazine manufacture"; and Elegy to the Memory of Francis late Duke of Bedford by H. Steers, Gent., commenting "Appropriate praise in indifferent poetry."]
