Excerpt from The Lives of Winfield Scott and Andrew Jackson

Thus much may be said without blame but a writer may go farther, and insist that any time is proper in which to nar rate the deeds of a man who has deserved well of his country. If his actions are worthy of record, the most appropriate mo ment for bringing them forward is when he is about to receive the reward of his deeds. There is a wide difference between writing a man into eminence, because unforeseen occurrences may place him in political power, and in defending and prais ing one whose claims to immortality neither present success nor failure can affect.
