jectionable on another ground; it engenders irritable feelings, and inclines even gentle natures to asperity. Literary warfare has often rendered men, otherwise amiable, callous and uncharitable on a favourite question. Milton expressed no compunction for the death of Salmasius, nor has the Quarterly recorded any penitence for the article that put an end to Keats. My object in the present instance is to maintain what I believe to be a correct view of the subject, and in support of which I have produced many evidences: at the same time I am ready to alter my opinion when those evidences are set aside by sound argument. It is only necessary to add, that I have verified every extract introduced into the following pages by a careful examination of the original authors: this is not mentioned from any parade of erudition or research, but because I think every man is bound to do so who wishes to be considered an honest reasoner, and because I have endeavoured to show that our antagonists have not done so, in more than one important instance.
