When the true apocalyptic books, which record the unknown kindnesses of man, are opened, it is not impossible that the name of this little hare- brained artist may stand higher than the name of kings and conquerors- perhaps also than the names of certain saints, who in their earthly days were less remarkable for warm sympathies than for icy propriety, and a strict attention to the main chance.- "Masterman and Son", W. J. Dawson.
