Art. XV. [Review of Bread; or, The Poor, by Samuel J Pratt]
[John A Murray] *
Samuel J Pratt professes 'to instruct, as well as amuse the public; to interest their humanity, by an account of the sufferings of the poor, and enlighten their understandings by this profound lesson of political economy, That scarcity is occasioned entirely by monopoly, and lately took place after plentiful harvests' (108–09). The reviewer considers Pratt's doctrine absurd and his poetry equally bad.
