Excerpt from The Works of Francis Bacon About thirty years ago, I read in Lord Bacon's will - "For my burial, I desire it may be in St. Michael's Church, St. Albans: there was my mother buried, and it is the parish church of my mansion-house of Gorhambury, and it is the only Christian church within the walls of Old Verulam. For my name and memory, I leave it to men's charitable speeches, and to foreign nations and the next ages." This passage, not to be read till he was at rest from his labours, impressed me with a feeling of his consciousness of ill usage, and a conviction that the time would arrive when justice would be done to his memory. The words were cautiously selected, with the knowledge, which he, above all men, possessed of the power of expression, and of its certain influence, sooner or later, upon society.
