Evidence

"Looking at Messrs. Dilly"s splendid edition of Lord Chesterfield"s miscellaneous works, he laughed, and said, ""Here now are two speeches ascribed to him, both of which were written by me: and the best of it is, they have found out that one is like Demosthenes, and the other like Cicero"". He censured Lord Kames"s ""Sketches of the History of Man"" for misrepresenting Clarendon"s account of the appearance of Sir George Villiers"s ghost, as if Clarendon were weakly credulous; when the truth is, that Clarendon only says, that the story was upon a better foundation of credit, than usually such discourses are founded upon; nay, speaks thus of the person who was reported to have seen the vision, ""the poor man, if he had been at all waking""; which Lord Kames has omitted."
