old
      book entitled The Adventures of Mme. De St. Phale, I
turned
      over the pages of a tremendous compilation entitled God’s
      Revenge against Murder
, where the beam of the eye of
      omniscience was represented as perpetually pursuing the
      guilty...  I was extremely conversant with The Newgate
      Calendar
and The Lives of the Pirates.  I rather amused
myself
      with tracing a certain similitude between the story of
Caleb
      Williams
and the tale of Bluebeard;” and Preface to
      Cloudesley:  “The present publication may in the same
sense be
      denominated a paraphrase of the old ballad of the Children
in
      the Wood.”]
