SHELTON MACKENZIE, (OF "THE PRESS") No. 1712 Locust Street, Philadelphia, Aug 5 1876 Dear Sir, Thoreau has been so tremendously over praised by the New England critics, or rather puffers, that I have never been able to take kindly to him. I admire Shelley beyond all modern poets, except Byron, but have not published my own estimate of his wondrous genius. As for Byron, I doubt whether he stands a jot lower than Shakespeare. Your oblige R. Shelton Mackenzie A. H. Dooley Esq
