Works of James Parton.

"He is a painstaking, honest, and courageous historian, ardent with patriotism, but unprejudiced, -a writer, in short, of whom the United States has reason to be proud. With an admirable truthfulness, and a daring that savors of genuine British ‘pluck,' Mr. Parton declines to whitewash his hero, preferring to portray him faithfully, neither palliating the bad, nor exaggerating the good, of his character.".

Le poëte, inspiré lorsque la terre ignore,
Ressemble à ces grands monts que la nouvelle aurore
Dore avant tous à son réveil,

Et qui, longtemps vainqueurs de l'ombre,
Gardent jusque dans la nuit sombre

Le dernier rayon du soleil.

VICTOR HUGO.
