Excerpt from Personal Reminiscences of Eminent Men, Vol. 1 of 3 The interest of biography depends, in many cases, and in no light degree, upon facts, many of which may be trivial, but that still display character. Of these, whether numerous or scanty, the writer of a biography must often combine his labours, however heterogeneous such materials may happen to be, and he must work out of them a whole as perfect as they will permit him to do. A work of a similar nature to the present, relat ing incidentally to character as far as the writer might be able to speak personally, may thus not only be interesting, but useful.
