MEMOIRS

OF THE

LIFE, WRITINGS, AND CORRESPONDENCE

OF

WILLIAM SMELLIE.

On the failure of the Edinburgh Magazine and Review, of which an account has been given at the close of the former volume, Dr STUART went again to London, and engaged in the Political Herald and English Review, in the employment of Mr John Murray, a very respectable bookseller in London, formerly mentioned. He conducted both of these works with much spirit and strong talents, but with his accustomed keen severity. Continuing his usual dissipation, he at length became dropsical, and was obliged to give up his literary labours at London, Vol. II.
