    • 1815, W. Percy, quoted by Egerton Brydges in Censura Literaria; second edition, Volume II, Article LXXIX, page 61:
      Wherefore, making (as they say) a vertue of necessitie, I did deeme it most convenient to præpose mine epistle, onely to beseech you to account of them as of toyes and amorous devises, and ere long I will impart unto the world another poeme, which shall be more fruitfull and ponderous.
