Evidence

"I spent the day in reading part of Irving"s sermons, which I have not finished. On the whole he should not have published it - till after a considerable time. There is strong talent in it, true eloquence, and vigorous thought: but the foundation is rotten, and the building itself is a kind of monster in architecture - beautiful in parts - vast in dimensions - but on the whole decidedly a monster."
