Excerpt from The Yale Literary Magazine, Vol. 32: Conducted by the Students of Yale CollegeMr. Prescott's private character was high and noble. He is remem bered among a circle of honored friends as an estimable and agreeable companion. His nature was winning, and his attention was constantly on guard against any word or action to offend. If anything could be more praiseworthy than his amiability, it was his industry. It has been remarked that he was not naturally diligent. His habits show that his perseverance cost a painful struggle. It is of little moment whether I succeed in this or that thing provided I am habitually in dustrious. This was his battle hymn when the condict between Will and Inclination became critical, and it evinces that the historian's success was well earned. But his aversion to labor was not from an inactive mind. Reading was a pastime, and a style of reading which some would deem onerous, he considered his literary loafing. His habits of composing abundantly prove that his mind was remarkably active and vigorous. Compelled to make it assume the duties of the eyes, he listened to the perusal of the historical materials, and then composed mentally, dictating the beautiful rythm of his histories to the pen of a secretary. This process necessitated the most compre hensive knowledge of the subject, the retention of all the facts in memory, and the complete maturity of the work. Consequently his books are marked as productions of the intellect, and perhaps here may be discerned the cause of that vivacity of style for which they are notorious; for no critic has dared to disallow this merit.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
