John Forster, 1812-76; contributor to reviews, and author of the biographies of Oliver Goldsmith, Charles Dickens, Walter Savage Landor, and Dean Swift (the last incomplete). was there, whom you well know as the great writer in the Examiner and the author of the Lives.
He is a very able fellow, and is yet young.
Landor takes to him very much.
His conversation is something like his writing.
I had a good deal of talk with him. You must know, also, that our host, Mr. Kenyon, is a bosom friend of Southey and Wordsworth, and is no mean poet himself, besides being one of the most agr
