Unless he intends to review [torn away] in the Millenium in high time!! - I hope your note last week [3 words illegible]. What about [illegible]? - Could you not get Whittaker to publish [illegible]. Yrs ever". English poet Robert Montgomery (1807-1855) is best known for his 1828 poem, "The Omni-presence of the Diety", which had attained its 28th edition by 1858. That poem as well as his 1830 work, "Satan: a Poem", received harsh criticism from Thomas B. Macaulay, but the censure did not diminish the popularity of his works, which also included "The Puffiad" (1830), "Oxford" (1831), "The Messiah" (1832) and "Woman, the Angel of Life" (1833). Also the author of numerous devotions and theological works, Montgomery became a minister in 1835 and led congregations in Scotland and England.
