A Treatise on Heat . By Dr . Lardner . ( Cabinet Cyclopaedia , vol . 39 . ) ( 9 . ( ) 7 . ) To the ' tale' which is told in Mr . Bird ' s flowing verse , are appended , amongst other small poems , some poetical metropolitan sketches / And truly the author is right in his notion that , not only the Thames and the Tower , but many other things in London , have poetry in them .
