Evidence

"I was much surprised at [what] Charteris said of John Stuart Mill. ""Seemed to have been kind and benevolent"" is used where, for any one else, he would have said """was"" kind and benevolent""; such locutions show a certain bias. But the strange part was his attempt to stultify Mill"s position, and almost to pull mouths at him, because he had been singularly faithful in love. All this sounds so unlike what I should have expected from Charteris that I suspect bad reporting."
