Excerpt from Historical Essays

Between these two, as I hope, fairly solid masses at each end, I have ventured to throw in a few slighter pieces from the Saturday Review, a few out of many contributed to that paper from its beginning to the year 1878. I put them forth as a kind of experiment, hardly knowing whether they are really worth preserving as separate pieces; I have used several already as notes to longer essays in other volumes. No one will look for full treatment of any sub ject on so small a scale; but it has sometimes struck me that a short paper of that kind now and then brings out a particular thought or point of view more forcibly than a longer one.
