    Purporting to be a prose rendition of Thomas Campbell's poem, The Pleasures of Hope, comically outlines the criticisms made by John Campbell (1st Baron Campbell) concerning the proposal to turn the Crystal Palace into a winter garden. The criticisms include the possibility that it will cause such diseases as 'rheumatisms, coughs and agues' and prove to be a 'huge hot-house of consumption'.
