"Mr. Porson is a giant in literature, a prodigy in intellect, a critic, whose mighty achievements leave imitation panting at a distance behind him, and whose stupendous powers strike down all the restless and aspiring suggestions of rivalry into silent admiration and passivo awe.—Enough, and more than enough, have I heard of his little oversights, in the hum of those busy inspectors, who peep and pry after one class of defects only; in the prattle of finical collectors, and the cavils of unlearned and half learned gossips. But I know that spots of this kind arc lost in the blaze of this great man's excellencies. I know that his character towers far above the reach of such puny objectors. I think that his claims to public veneration are too vast to be measured by their short and crooked rules, too massy to be lifted by their feeble efforts, and even too sacred to be touched by their unhallowed hands."—Parr'* Reply to Combe.
