Excerpt from Cato to Lord Byron: On the Immorality of His Writings

Ir will probably occasion you no surprise that a poet who disregards decency should subject himself to animadversion. In assuming the li berty of this address, I claim but a common and conceded privilege. An author's works (as you have yourself remarked*) are public pro perty. He who purchases may judge, and pub lish his opinion if he pleases. Generally speak ing, indeed, we content ourselves with a silent judgment; but when the moral sense of mankind is attempted to be perverted, and their religious opinions and feelings are held up to contempt, a mere silent judgment can no longer be rested in. Our duty then runs in a higher form, and, where offence is crying, reprehension becomes virtuous.
