Of a recent case of PREMATURE INTERMENT of a
NOBLEMAN!!! Extracted from the Surrey, Southwark, Middlesex, and Sussex
Gazelte of Saturday, January 9, 1819, and the Daily Papers.
“ Extract of a Letter from Bavaria. “We have witnessed here, a superb funeral of the BARON JIORNSTEIN, a Courtier, but the result, is what induces me to mention it in my letter.
“ Two days after the Funeral, the workmen entered the Mausoleum, when they witnessed an object which petrified them with HORROR!!!
66 At the door of the sepulchre lay a body covered with Blood! It was the mortal remains of the favourite of Courts and Princes!
66 The Baron had been BURIED ALIVE!!!
“. On recovering from his Trance, he had forced the lid of his Coffin, and endeavoured to escape from the Charnel. + house! It was impossible! He therefore, in a fit of desperation, as it is supposed, had dashed his brains out against the wall !!!
“ The Royal Family, and indeed the whole city are 1. plunged in grief at the horrid catastrophe!”
Let the Reviewers read this, and 100 other voluntary certificates of such dreadful catastrophes, equally well attested, and blush for their ignorance and want of humanity. When they enshrine themselves behind the impervious buckler of anonymous darkness, and shoot their insidious arrows at their superiors.

prudent, and discreet in thought and word ; not beardless boys,-,. “ who've barely learned to spell; nor shrivelled varlets, overgrown “ with spleen and lust of pelf; who'd sell a name to gain 'em “ half-a-crown Indeed the censor's office, would intimidate a “ modest man, whose virtue fits him for the task , while booby
fops rush in pell-well to fill the awful chair, and what in talent “ is to them deny'd, is made up in bold assurance !
Such men "sha’nt stamp a value on my book.”
