Excerpt from Translations: Into English and Latin

I have nowhere adopted a phrase or word of any previous translator. I had translated the first Iliad before Lord Derby's or Mr. Wright's Homer appeared, and the second before I had seen their versions. The same remark applies, mutatis mu tandz's, to Professor Conington's Horace. I did not know till I had finished the Eclogues that any translation of them existed, for Dryden's, I sup pose, scarcely counts as a translation. Since then I have met with Mr. Kennedy' 3 Virgil, and availed myself of it to correct my rendering of line 79 of Eclogue III.
