The Cayme Press have published Matthew Green's The Spleen, of
which Horace Walpole said " that it has-the wit of Butler with the ease of Prior." Here are two extracts which have charmed us :
" Hunting I reckon very good
To brace the nerves and stir the blood, While spleen lies soft relaxed in bed Or o'er coal fires inclines the head ; Hygea's sons with hound and horn And jovial cry awake the morn," •
and " Laugh and be well ; monkeys have been Extreme good doctors for the spleen."
We can recommend this volume " to cure the mind's wrong biass," for the modest sum of 6s.--far, far less than the fee Of
a ' psycho-analyst. * * * *
