Mallet, David (17021765)

Mallet, David, originally Malloch, Scottish littérateur, born in Crieff; wrote several plays, and is remembered for his ballad entitled “William and Margaret”; he was a friend of Thomson, and divided with him the honour of the authorship of “Rule Britannia,” the merit of which, however, is more in the music than in the poetry, about which they contested (17021765).
