9781331404989: The Life of John Pendleton Kennedy (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Life of John Pendleton Kennedy

Sir Walter Scott, writing of some cultivated young Ameri cans whose acquaintance he had just made, says I hope they will inoculate their country with a love of letters so nearly al lied to a love of peace and a sense of justice and Lord Bacon observes of men of science and literature, that when devoted to public affairs, they carry thereunto a spirit more lofty and com prehensive than that which animates the mere politician. Both convictions of these eminent individuals are signally illustrated in Mr. Kennedy's public life his culture widened and elevated his functions as a public man, and enlisted his effective co - op eration in behalf of the arts of peace, the progress of science, and the good of humanity.
