Excerpt from Men, Women, and Books, Vol. 1 of 2: A Selection of Sketches, Essays, and Critical Memoirs, From His Uncollected Prose Writings

Should anything else in the impulsive portions of those essays, which were written when he was young, appear a little out of the pale of recognized manners, in point of style and animal spirits, the new reader will be good enough to understand, what old ones have long been aware of, and grown kind to, - namely, that the writer comes of a tropical race; and that what might have been afi'ectation in a colder blood, was only enthusiasm in a warm one. He is not con scious. However, of having suffered anything to re main, to which a reasonable critic could object. He has pruned a few passages, in order that he might not seem to take undue advantage of an extempore or anonymous allowance and in later years, particularly when seated on the critical bench, he has been pleased, and perhaps profited, in conforming himself to the customs of the court. But had he attempted to alter the general spirit of his writings, he would have belied the love of truth that is in him, and even shown himself ungrateful to public warrant.
