Excerpt from The Poems and Plays of Oliver Goldsmith
There 1s no definite evidence that, from a doggerel couplet in his childhood to an epigram not much better than doggerel composed when he was five and twenty, he had written a line of verse of the slightest import ance; and even five years later, although he refers to himself in a private letter as a poet, it must have been solely upon the strength of the unpublished fragment of Tile Mueller, which in the interval, he had sent to his brother Henry from abroad. It is even more remarkable.
