Excerpt from The Second Funeral of Napoleon, And, Critical Reviews

MY dear - It is no easy task in this world to distinguish between what is great in it, and what is mean 5 and many and many is the puzzle that I have had in reading History (or the works of fiction which go by that name), to know whether I should laud up to the skies, and endeavor, to the best of my small capabilities, to imitate the remarkable character about whom I was reading, or whether I 'should ing aside the book and the hero of it, as things altogether base, unworthy, laugh able, and get a novel, or a game of billiards, or a pipe of tobacco, or the report of the last debate in the House, or any other employment which would leave the mind in a state of easy vacuity, rather than pester it with a vain set of dates relating to actions which are in themselves not worth a fig, or with a parcel of names of people whom it can do one no earthly good to remember.
