“HE WAS OF AN ADMIRABLE PREGNANCY OP WIT, AND THAT PREGNANCY

MUCH IMPROVED BY CONTINUAL STUDY FROM HIS CHILDHOOD; BY WHICH HE

HAD GOTTEN SUCII A PROMPTNESS IN EXPRESSING HIS MIND, THAT HIS EXTEM

PREMEDITATED

WRITINGS.

MANY, NO DOUBT, HAD READ AS MUCH, AND PERHAPS MORE THAN HE;

BUT

SCAL.CE EVER ANY CONCOCTED HIS READING INTO JUDGMENT AS HE DID."
