Excerpt from Remains, Historical and Literary, Connected With the Palatine Counties of Lancaster and Chester, Vol. 32
Perhaps the most interesting part of the discoveries, to us who were engaged in the pursuit, were the memoranda of his studies, written in books of every possible shape, and in handwritings of every conceivable character but always shewing a power of manipulation perhaps unrivalled by any other professor of the art of calligraphy. These exhibit the extent, the variety, and the accuracy of his literary studies in a very striking, indeed an amazing point of View. There seems to have been hardly any language, of which the litera ture was of any value, which he did not thoroughly master; and his writing of Hebrew, Arabic, &c., was such as the graver might vainly attempt to imitate. Nor was there any scientific or other literary question agitated by scholars in his day, into which he did not heartily enter. But these journals, from their very nature as well as their extent, it is quite impossible to do justice to by any attempt at publica tion. They remain as wonderful memorials of the industry of an idle man.
