ABSTRACT
The article offers information on The Prince Regent's Librarian, James Stanier Clarke and his conflict with American writer Joel Barlow. In early 1791, Clarke has made a contact with poet William Hayley. Hayley welcomed Clarke to his home at Eartham in Sussex, England from 1791 onwards and to confer his patronage on the young cleric. When Barlow arrived in England in 1792, Halley offered helpful and constructive advice to the American writer for his work "The Vision of Columbus." On March 25, 1792, after serious searching consultation and agreement between Clarke and Hayley, Clarke sent a letter to Barlow criticizing "The Vision of Columbus." Hayley added a rider to the letter blaming Clarke for being to ruthless with his criticism. After reading the letter, Barlow published it.
