Excerpt from Poems

IN May, 1794, when scarcely six years of age, he was sent to the school of Dr. Home, at Chis wick. Under the able tuition of this respectable gentleman he made the most rapid progress in classical learning: The rival exercises of a public seminary operated upon his active mind as con tinual incentives to studious exertion; while, by the well-timed instructions of a private master, who attended him at his grandmother's during his winter vacations, in London, he was not only prevented from dissipating the knowledge he had already acquired, but was enabled, by continued perseverance, to make.farther advances in learn ing - He left Chiswick at Midsummer, 1804. An elegy, addressed to Dr. Horne, fully evinc'es how properly a grateful pupll had appreciated the advantages of ajudicious system of education.

After leaving Dr. Horne, he came to his parents, who then resided at Doncaster. The summer months of this year (1804) he employed in visiting a numerous and respectable circle of acquaintance; on whose minds he left impressions of'excellence never to be forgotten.
