This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1778 Excerpt: .His moral character was so pure, that if one may say of that imperfect creature man, what a celebrated historian says of Scipio, nil non laudandam aut dixit, aut fecit, aut sensit I sincerely think, (I had almost said I know) one might say it with great truth of him, one single instance excepted, which shall be mentioned.

This part of his character was so universally known, that our best and most satirical English poet says; When I confess, there is who feels for fame, . And melts to goodness, need I Scarborough name? He had not the least pride of birth and rank j that common narrow notion of little minds, that wretched mistaken succedaneum of merit; but he was jealous to anxiety of his character, as all men are who deserve a good one.

For surely never man had a higher reputation, and never man enjoyed a more universal esteem. Even knaves respected him; and fools thought they loved him. If he had any enemies (for I protest I never knew one), they could only be such as were weary of always hearing of Aristides the Just. He was too subject to sudden gusts of passion, but they never hurried him into any illiberal or indecent expression or action; so invincibly habitual to him were good-nature and good-manners.
