Excerpt from Lalla Rookh: An Oriental Romance

On this last occasion, Mr. Perry kindly offered himself as my representative in the treaty; and, what with the friendly zeal of my negotiator on the one side, and the prompt and liberal spirit with which he was met on the other, there has seldom, I think, oc curred any transaction in which Trade and Poesy have shone out so advantageously in each other's eyes. The short discussion that then took place, between the two parties, may be comprised in a very few sentences. I am of Opinion, said Mr. Perry, enforcing his View of the case by arguments which it is not for me to cite that Mr. Moore ought to receive for his Poem the largest price that has been given, in our day, for such a work. That was, answered the Messrs. Longman, three thousand guineas. Exactly so, replied Mr. Perry, and no less a sum ought he to receive.
