Excerpt from Some Account of the English Stage, From the Restoration in 1600 to 1830, Vol. 5 of 10
Mallet wrote his poem on Verbal Criticism to pay court to Pope by attacking Theobald, who revenged himself by observing, that an anonymous writer, like a Scotch pedlar in wit, had unbraced his pack on the subject; of whom I may fairly say, as Fal staff does of Poins, Hang him baboon! His wit is as thick as Tewksbury mustard there is no more conceit in him than in a Mallet.'
