Hunt 1828


Universities, Phrenology

    Observes of Campbell that he betrays profoundly philanthropic feelings, though he seeks to efface them. Notes: 'Mr Campbell professes to be hopeless and sarcastic, and takes pains all the while to set up a university'. Remarks: 'His skull was sharply cut and fine; with plenty, according to the phrenologists, both of the reflective and amative organs: and his poetry will bear them out'.
