Excerpt from Life of Lord Jeffrey: With a Selection From His Correspondence And, no doubt, this is a serious objection. But if the biographer of Charlemont felt the indelicacy of the censorian duty in a work published eleven years after the death of his subject, how would he have recoiled from it within less than two? But, indeed, there were few persons whom Jeffrey himself abused; and though there were some public matters connected with his life on which it would not be wrong to speak, even now, in terms of severe condemnation, it would be unworthy of his magnanimous spirit to recal provocations which he had forgotten. My thanks are due, and are hereby given, to all those who have assisted me by contributions of letters. These letters will probably be deemed the only valuable part of this work. It must, therefore, be explained, that he was so constant a correspondent, that those now published are but a small portion of what he was always writing; and that his letters were generally so full of those personal and domestic details, which, however delightful to receive, are uninteresting.
