Excerpt from A Sketch of the Life of Philip DoddridgeIn the preparation of the following sketch, the same disappointment has been encountered which often presents itself to the biographer of persons of even the greatest distinction - the meagerness of personal details and private history, that can be satisfactorily authenticated after the lapse of a generation from the time of their decease. Indeed, it is not an unfrequent fact, that men of the highest order of intellect, and who have participated largely, and influentially, in the various learned professions, have, nevertheless, left few and inadequate proofs of their great talents and activities. This is especially so, in the case of those who have been chiefly distinguished as members of the Bar. The judge on the Bench leaves the evidences of his learning and ability in his recorded decisions; the philosopher is known by his discoveries; the poet by his works; the historian by his annals; and the statesman by his measures of public policy incorporated in the legislation of his country. But in respect of the most eminent of them, there are many instances, where we can ascertain but little of their personal habits, private life, and social characteristics.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
