Letters of a Solitary Wanderer
    (Review / The Letters of a Solitary Wanderer: Containing Narratives of Various Descriptions, by Charlotte Smith)
  Monthly Magazine / JAS, 1801
  vol. 11 (1801): 606.
'The Letters of a Solitary Wanderer,' come from the prolific pen of Mrs Charlotte Smith: a lady to whose taste and talents the public has paid many a tribute of respect. If these letters are comparatively deficient in that glowing imagery which enriches the various works of Mrs Charlotte Smith, they have excellencies of a different kind, which amply compensate the loss. Though a less luxuriant, we remark a more chaste diction: we observe also a general justness of sentiment and consistency of character, which have not always distinguished the productions of this plaintive writer. Of those letters which are unconnected, Mrs Smith promises us a continuation at some later time. [complete]
