To Samuel B. H. Judah

June 28. 1822


I have recd. & looked over the poem accompanying your favor of the 14th. Altho’ candor will not permit me to bestow on it, unqualified praise, justice requires that I should not say less than that it exhibits a strength of thought & flights of genius, which time & taste may render worthy of the poetic rank to which the youthful author aspires. With respects & good wishes


Draft (DLC).
