Description

Excerpt from Lord Macaulay: An Essay, Read Before the Dublin Young Men's Christian Association in Connexion With the United Church of England and Ireland Clodpole and the Quack Doctor-which Mrs. More de scribes as really good. 'tis said, the child is father to the man; and so it was particularly in the case of Macaulay; we who have lived to see the close of his brilliant career, and can look back upon the vast results of his prodigious energy, stretching back in a kind of inverted perspective, we can turn to the records of this period of his life with an indescribable pleasure how he must have listened with rapture to Hannah More's account of those great giants of literature amongst whom she had lived - the intrigues of Mrs. Piozzi, the pom posity of Johnson, the brilliancy of Garrick, the adulation of Boswell, all the greatness - all the brilliancy of a period which in her person was connected with the present. Yes! When we are reading some of Macaulay's grand elaborate essays when he alludes to men of the J ohnsonian era, our minds are carried back to the happy days he spent at Barley Wood, where the gentle and pious hostess prayed in the little room with the latticed window, for the success of him - the eldest son of her former pupil.
