CHAPTER I
PUBLIC LATTERS 1838-1840

You may invert the words kind and sPecies; you may employ or omit either.
" Undeviating candour" is a false metaphor. The last sentence in the same page is excellent. But let me ask whether the author is quite sure that he himself holds up to veneration "the votaries of duty, of peace, of freedom"; whether, on the contrary, he never has acted contemptuously and superciliously in regard to those "votaries," men who have disdained the clamorous of all parties, the distribution of all honours and emoluments, men whom no elevation to the woolsack could exalt, and no expulsion from it depress or irritate.
P. 5. " Both to himself personally, to the order in which his lot was cast, and
to the rest of mankind."
Both is applicable to two and no more.
P. 5. "" Unhappily he took the wrong direction."
Did any man ever take it happily ?
P. 6. " A narrow understanding, which no culture had enlarged."
Culture may improve, but not enlarge.
P. 7. "Defects eradicated."
Defect is the same as deficiency or failing. You cannot eradicate
what is deficient or absent.
P. 7. " Neither knowledge, accomplishments, nor abilities."
Neither is the opposite of either: one or other ; not two or more.
It is painful to revert to anything, much beyond the commencement, in the dismal and disastrous reign of George III. But here is a sentence worth transcribing.
" The different orders in the State have a right to look forward towards that
high quarter, all in their turn, for support, when their rights are invaded by one another's encroachments, or to claim the Royal mnpirage when their mutual conflict cannot be settled by mutual concessions."
Instead of animadverting on such an inelegance as for-ward towards, I hasten to look at the mutual conflict. Let nobody call its propriety in question. Usually, when there is a conflict, proof enough is given that two can play at that game, as school-boys say, and sometimes several take a part in it: but Lord Brougham, like the Romans after their triumphs, has exhibited the most stupendous
