Portée et contenu

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Glad Robert was not 'over burdened' to receive his own books [see 12/250]. Amusing about Julian's 'hero-worship of [George] Stephenson'; agrees that he was a 'hero'. Glad Julian learns what he is interested in by heart, and well; thinks quality more important than quantity; he himself 'ruined' what he supposes was a good memory by having to learn too much, and has tried to improve himself recently by learning a few select pieces. Turned seventy eight years old today, and has finished reading Thucydides, having begun reading it on 28 January; agrees with [Henry] Jackson that the 'account of the scoundrelly plot of Pisander, and the Whig counter Revolution of Theramenes, is equal to most things in history'; does not see how anyone can doubt it is by Thucydides.
