Edmund Burke looms before us through the mist of years as a prodigy of eloquence and knowledge; devoted to the good or his country; an unselfish and disinterested patriot; a sage whose moral wisdom shines far beyond his own generation and century. He was the most remarkable man who has taken part in public affairs, from the thrilling days of our Revolution down to the present time. The life and principles of so great, a man are a fascinating study to all admirers of the work he accomplished. If history has any interest or value, it is to show the influences that combined to produce the great Celt, Edmund Burke, whose impress on his own age and on the ages that have succeeded, is still a marvel and a cause of universal admiration.
