after its appearance some person (evidently a personal enemy of the author and said to have been Prof. John Hoogh) published an acrimonious critique upon the book. Such was the effect of the article upon either Mr. Sanders or the publishers, that the work was suppressed. So nearly complete was its absolute extinction, that even the biographers of the author had forgotten the work, making no mention of it in their memoirs of him. Fine copy.
