Excerpt from Robert Wallace, Life and Last Leaves

N o attempt has been made here to continue the contemplated work. Such an attempt could only have met with disastrous failure. It is clear that my brother meant two things by his original design - to show the moral continuity and inevitableness of his chequered experiences, and (not being an egotist in the aggressive or self-conscious sense) to illustrate the general life of Scotland and his time, so far as that came within his knowledge, by means of these experiences. It is obvious that only he could have done this. But Sheriff Campbell Smith, who kindly undertook to write a sketch of his early years, elucidating and supplementing the Reminiscences, has, as the oldest and most intimate friend among his surviving contemporaries, been able so far to follow the plan of the original work as to illustrate the university and religious life of Scotland by means of his career.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 658 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.3in.Excerpt from Robert Wallace, Life and Last LeavesSome years before his death my late brother arranged with the publishers of this volume to write a full account of his varied career under the title of Recollections of a Chequered Life. The fragment which, as Reminiscences, forms the first portion of the present work, will show how short a distance he had travelled towards the accomplishment of his design, and how great a loss the literature of autobiography has sustained by his death. No attempt has been made here to continue the contemplated work. Such an attempt could only have met with disastrous failure. It is clear that my brother meant two things by his original design - to show the moral continuity and inevitableness of his chequered experiences, and (not being an egotist in the aggressive or self-conscious sense) to illustrate the general life of Scotland and his time, so far as that came within his knowledge, by means of these experiences.
