Evidence: "They settled for us to speak separately; I have to say a poem of Sir Walter Raleigh's called "The Lye" from Percy's Reliques--he a bit of Burke on Warren Hastings. Mine is declamatory. Besides having to learn it I feel I cannot say a fiery English Monologue, so well as a simple German comic dialogue." I have chosen to represent the first edition here given the lack of details regarding the specific edition JAS read.
Frequency Mentioned: Twice; 1:318 (204) "I had not read anything interesting this week. The Golden Treasury & Percy's Reliques and Songs from the Dramatists (wh arrived quite safely) I dip into occasionally."
