Excerpt from Letters of Sir Charles Bell, K. H., F. R. S. L. And E: Selected From His Correspondence With His Brother George Joseph BellHabitual to him, nor surrendered one jot of his independence. The many in every generation who are exposed to the same, or similar ditfi culties, will find comfort and courage in his high aims, in¿exible principles, and calm perseverance. There are, indeed, passages in his letters which might lead persons who knew him imperfectly to imagine that he repined at the inadequate appre ciation of his labours, and had a consciousness of their value which was not untinged with vanity. Nothing could be further from his disposition. The genius which was capable of making his leading discovery could not be blind to its vast importance, or sometimes avoid feeling that the world was slow to comprehend its reach and beauty. These were sim[)le truths of which he could no more be ignorant than of the fact that he was a rational being; and with the frankness of an honest nature, untainted with afi'ectation, he told his thoughts to the brother whom he regarded as a second self. But he had far too just an estimate of the littleness of man in the midst of the vastness of creation to give way to conceit, and too profound a faith in the Provi dence who governed the world to be otherwisethan deeply thankful for his lot.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
