This memoir is a "faithful image of the mode of thinking in those days of which it treats, an interesting and new specimen of private and public character, of general and individual biography, and that recommended as it comes by clearness of discernment, strength and candour of judgement, simplicity and perspicuity of narrative, pure, amiable, .sentiments at once tender and elevated, conveyed in language elegant, expressive, and classical, occasionally embellished with apposite, impressive, and classical, and well supported figures, it will be found to afford instruction to every class of readers."
