There is quite a lot more I could say, but I won't. I have already
admitted my error in responding to McEwan. Rest assured that neither

Poor John Field!-I trust he does not read this, unless he will improve
by it,-thinking to live by some derivative old country mode in this primitive new country,-to catch perch with shiners. It is good bait,

mother and boggy ways, not to rise in this world, till their wading
webbed bog-trotting feet get talaria to their heels.
