3pp., 4to. Bifolium. Addressed, on reverse of second leaf, to 'Francis Cohen Esq | King's Bench Walk | Temple | London'. Fair, on aged paper, with the narrow remains of a paper windowpane mount around the edges of the second leaf. Milman begins: 'I found Garbett so much occupied that until yesterday I have not had an opportunity of seeing him'. Garbett has promised to send Milman 'a detailed answer' to all of Cohen's questions, 'and is very much flattered by your favorable opinion'. A notice from Cohen 'would be a very good avant-courier' for the 'account of the work' which Garbett intends to publish. Gabett is 'by nature rather dilatory, and at present is a good deal at Oxford, where he is employed on a new sheet - which is to bring the long-banished Worcester College into the University'. He is pleased that Cohen likes 'the Martyr, who indeed is a greater female than I expected her to be [Milman's dramatic poem 'The Martyr of Antioch' (1822)] - on the subject of Anti Diluvian Heroes, I agree very much with you, and cannot sufficiently admire the manner in which Milton, and he alone triumphed over the difficulty - His Adam and Eve are just different enough from all other men and women to make us believe that they were inhabitants of a nobler and better world; just sufficiently allied to human nature in their thoughts and feelings, to arrest our sympathies, and interest us'. He has a little more to say about the subject, before concluding. N° de ref. de la librería 11505
