Excerpt from Life of Sir Walter Scott

Criticism will not be attempted, because it would demand more space than it is thought well to occupy because the pre sent writer lacks the disposition for it: because the World is now Scott's judge, and because such criticism can be best gathered from the prefaces and notes to the numerous editions of his works.

But to write a true biography, a history of the man's life, and to do so faithfully and lovingly, is all that has been here attempted.

He was so true a man, so earnest, honest, full of frankness, bravery, and reverence - loving his God and king - loving the heath and firs and rude mountains of his wild Scotland - loving kith and kindred like a true clansman - his dependents like aviii introductory.
