Excerpt from The Acharnians, Knights, and Clouds: Translated Into Corresponding English Metres

Ever erected by some dull prosaic monarch in these modern days. We might even hope in such a case to recover a few of the genuine letters, that had passed between the wits and the heroes Of ancient Greece, as the example of Herculaneum has taught us the possibility of deciphering mss. Which have been lying for ages in a carbonised state beneath the solid lava. But if we were to carry our imagination beyond the sober boundaries of fact, and suppose for an instant that such entertaining miscellanies as our newspapers and magazines had existed in those times, and had been preserved in the same manner; what a boundless field would then be Opened to the eye of the astonished spectator! The political squabbles - the domestic scandals - the scurrilous lam poons - the humourous epigrams - of the most talented people.
