Cowper, Miss

Hannah More to William Hayley, 31 August 1811

I have had /great/ pleasure in shewing your fine Verses to one of the nearest survivi[ng] [tear] relations of Cowper, the daughter of the pious and to whom his more devout letters are addressed.* They have also afforded a great treat to the excellent with whom I am now on a visit. I need not tell You he is the Author of some of our best Modern Sermons*; of two valuable treatises on the ‘Duties of Man /&/ duties of women’*; and his ‘Walks in a Forest* enable him to appreciate as a Poet.
