Excerpt from The Lives of the British Historians, Vol. 1 The Historians, as a class, unlike their more erratic brethren, the Poets, have usually been grave, wise, prudent and virtuous men. Some of them, like Clarendon or Burnet, have taken a large share in the politics of their age, and have left the impress of their peculiar opinions upon the history of their country. Others, like Gibbon and Hume, have been the popular authors of their time, aiding the progress of literature in every land, by an example of unselfish devotion to mental improve ment. While even the humblest of them have prepared the way, by their researches and inquiries, for the advent of writers of greater genius, and, probably, a Macaulay or a Hume would not be unwilling to confess that they had been considerably indebted to Carte and Rapin.
