Σελίδα 506 - Never was a greater mixture of honour, virtue, [none,] and good sense, in any one person, than in him : a great man, attended with a sweetness of behaviour and easiness of conversation, which charms all who come near him ; nothing of the stiffness of a statesman, yet the capacity and knowledge of a piercing wit.
