Hoy, John. [note]
“Poems on various subjects, by John Hoy, jun.
Edinburgh,” appeared at Edinburgh, in 1781. “These poems were the
production of a young man, born on the banks of the Tweed, who died in the twenty-sixth year
of his age. Several of them are far above mediocrity, and are such as shew clearly, that had
he lived, the poetical world had reason to expect something much superior to the specimens he
has left behind him.” A. Campbell. [note]
