Description The Scandinavian Kingdom of Dublin de Charles Haliday:

Excerpt from The Scandinavian Kingdom of Dublin Merchants are not much given to the making of books. They seldom leave behind them any of their own composing, save their cash books and their ledgers. There can scarcely be named a merchant in the ranks of literary writers, except Rogers, author of the "Pleasures of Memory" and other poems, rather satirically described by Byron as "the bard, the beau, the banker." But a banker is not a merchant, and often gives no more to the bank than his money and his name, and employs his time and his leisure as he likes. Whence comes this disinclination to literary labour? It is not so much perhaps that the merchant's mind is too absorbed in business to leave him leisure as that it would detract from his character to be suspected of literary pursuits. Poetry was at one time held to be as derogatory to a lawyer. Sir Richard Cox had a strong bent to poetry (says Walter Harris). He wrote some lines on the death, in 1696, of Lord Chancellor Porter, Sir Richard being at that time a Judge of the Common Pleas. But his verses being transmitted to his friend and patron, Sir Robert Southwell, Sir Robert wrote in reply that poetry was not the way to preferment, but a weed in a judge's garden. Poetry is classed among the liberal arts. If there be illiberal ones perhaps they may be those having the direct pursuit of wealth for their aim.
