Description

Excerpt from Life of Robert, Marquis of Salisbury, Vol. 2: 1868-1880 Yet blood told. Through all his literary and scientific culture there ran a vein as distinct as an outcrop in geological strata. He always knew before hand what would be the squire's view of any proposed legislation and, except where it involved the indolent plea of privilege which never appealed to him, he always sympathised with it. Though he shared not at all in the sporting pleasures of the country and only exotically in its interests, he had an instinctive understanding of the men who lived there, - distrusted, as they did, the teachings of theory; was suspicious, with them, of the claims of book-learnedness even where reason compelled him to accept its conclusions; and, though sometimes critical of their methods of conducting their business, was always ready to spring to arms by their side at the first threat of external interference in its concerns.
