Excerpt from History of English Literature
Pondering on these modes of feeling and thought, men decided that i them were embalmed facts of the highest kind. They saw that these facts bore reference to the most important occurrences, that they aphined and were explained by them, that it was necessary thence iarth to give them a rank, and a most important rank, in history. This unk they have received, and from that moment history has undergone a complete change: in its subject-matter, its system, its machinery, the appreciation of laws and of causes. It is this change, as it has hap pened and must still happen, that we shall here endeavour to exhibit.
