[I have not whipped the volumes as Barron claims the reversion.]
Wednesday [ ? ]
Can you lend me two more volumes of Sir C. Grandrion? He really grows upon one - His sprint of generosity are finely pourtrayed. Tho [sic] I confess I see not in his conversation any of that enlivening cheerfulness which all his admirers ascribe to it. It seems to me lame & rather whining -- a little of Dr. Cantwell in it. Sir C. is no hypocrite -- & therefore his ^good sentiments ought not to give disgust -- still they must not be called [?animaling] & vivacious. -- I have no room for more criticism. Best regards to Mrs. Hunt,
