CORRESPONDENCE. We have received a letter from Acudemus, charging McJefferson, the author of Hore Poeticæ, (See F. R. Vol. I. 417) with copying the poetni which we extracted in noticing that work, from the Rev. John Robertson's Letters on the Lord's Supper. Edin, 1794. On applying to Mr. Jefferson, we have received a very satisfactory explanation, which we insert in his own words.

• It seems Mr. Robertson had lost a child by death, and finding my piece, inserted in the Evangelical Magazine for August 1793, under the signature of Iota, suitable to his bereaved situation, he had placed it in his own volume ; but in such a manner as might easily induce his readers to consider it as his own production. When I published my volume of Poems, I did not think the matter of sufficient importance to notice, little supposing that any one would accuse me of such a plagiarism ; and especially in a composition, which I consider as inferior to some others in the work, the sentiments being little more than a paraphrase of the words of David on the death of his child."

Mr. Wood's favour is duly received ; and we have taken an opportunity of forwarding a few lines in answer.

W. K. will accept of our thanks, for his friendly offer.

Art. I. The Itinerary of Archbishop Baldwin through Wales, A. D.

MCLXXXVIII. By Giraldus De Berri, translated into English, and
illustrated with Views, Annotations, and a life of Giraldus, by Sir
Richard Colt Hoare, Bart. F. R. S. F. A. S. 2 Vols. royal quarto.
Price £8. 88. pp. 850. With a volume containing the original Latin.

£11. Ils. Miller, 1806. WHEN the Mahommedan arms, under the victorious Saladin,

had wrested from the Greek Empire some of its fairest provinces, when they had ravaged those countries which had been sanctified by the residence and miracles of the Son of God, and especially, when Jerusalem itself, the Holy City, had fallen a prey to the warlike devotees of the Arabian impostor, the shock was felt throughout Christendom; and every

valiant heart awoke to sentiments of honour, of policy, and of devotion. Taught, too severely, the insufficiency of his own powers to repel the ferocious Invader, the Greek Emperor solicited sup; port from the West, and in the name of Religion invoked assistance, from all who were concerned for the glory of the Cross. The state of the East, as depicted by his agents, was truly deplorable: they represented the haughty foe as unremitting in his progress, inflamed by victory after victory, and maddened by the brutal enjoyments of conquest. “The sceptre of universal dominion,” said they, “ awaits the grasp of the unsparing enemy. Terror and despondency lead the van of his barbarous battalions, describe their prowess as invincible, and paralyze the arm which courage might have lifted in resistance. Cruelty and rapine mark their track, devastation and ruin follow.

In vain is the city fortified, in vain is the field contested, his ranks are thinned, his march impeded in vain; new legions crowd into the vacancies, and rush onward with redoubled violence! They revel amid the smoking ruins of our palaces, once how august! They wave their triumphant banners over the Sacred Sepulchre! They breathe defiance against the name of Christ, and swear the extermination of his faith and people.” The appeal reached England; and when were her sons tardy at the call of honour, or at the supplications of distress? VOL. II,

3D

Inured to contention, and, enamoured of martial glory, their native bravery needed little excitement. But in this cause religion, as religion was then understood, consecrated their energies, promising success and renown in this life, and assuring to the dying hero a crown of immortality. It may tend a little to abate our respect for this enthusiasm, when it is considered that the Croises were exempted from prosecution for debt, from paying of interest, &c. &c. and were intitled to plenary indulgencies, with all the privileges of the clerical order. At the same time, the obstinate recusants were subjected, not merely to reproach and ignominy, but to a property, tax of ten per Cent. It would be too much to suppose these advantages were overlooked. Urged however by secular or by religious considerations, all ranks panted for the conflict: the Noble summoned his vassals; the Knight accoutred his horse and prepared his armour: the Archer strung his bow, and replenished his quiver: the Peasant furbished his trusty bill, and wielded the ponderous weapon which should crash on the head of his enemy with resistless violence.

Equal enthusiasm animated the Church; for what less than enthusiasm could impel an Archbishop of Canterbury to travel from city to city, and from village to village, preaching the duty of engaging ina Croisade. In this laborious exertion of persevering zeal, Archbishop Baldwin was accompanied by the celebrated Ranulf Glanville, the father of English jurisprudence, and then just raised to the new and important office of Chief Justiciary.

Not confining their labours to people of their own race and language, they traversed the counties of Wales, and sought among the Ancient Britons for heroic asserters of the liberties of Palestine. The history of this mission is the main subject of the splendid volumes before us. The Itinerary was composed by Giraldus de Barri, usually called Cambrensis, or the Cambrian; one of those who accompanied the Archbishop in his arduous progress, and, as his eloquence was the more intelligible of the two, who shared in the honour of promoting the purpose of this pious expedition.

This valuable record of British Antiquity, was published in the original Latin, in 12ino, 1585, and reprinted by Camden, in folio, 1602. The present editor, Sir Richard Colt Hoare, has for the first time translated it into English, and has embellished his edition with a splendor of paper, engravings, and accompaniments, which are highly honourable to his taste and spirit. Sir Richard commences these volumes with a respectable memoir of the author, for which he has resorted to the most authentic sources. His life is not of remarkable im. portance to our readers, we shall therefore only notice that he was born at the castle of Manorbeer, Pembrokeshire, in the
