When Wordsworth's little boy visited Charles Lamb in London, his host wrote to the father at the Lakes that the boy was looking about him and making observations. "Perhaps," writes Lamb, "he has hitherto paid too little atten- tion to other men's inventions, preferring, like Lord Foppington, the natural sprouts of his own."
We muststudy other men's inventions in our closet, but need we now print our comments on them? Exposition, interpretation, by them- selves are not necessary. But for controversy there is cause.
