and on “Letters of an Episcopalian,” in the Edinburgh
Review of 1826; or, again, such publications of his later

Tract on the Cholera in 1831, and two or three letters to
newspapers, as well as the article on “Dr. Hampden’ in
the Edinburgh Review of 1836, or such of the Essays
appended to his edition of Thucydides, 1830–35, as were

which he wrote; at the same time it will be obvious that
his language would often have been modified by a change
