John Gibson Lockhart to John Wilson Croker, 12 January 1849, on Macaulay"s recently-published History of England: "He has written some very brilliant essays [...] but he has written [italics]no history[end italics] [...] his bitter hatred of the Church of England all through is evident; it is, I think, the only very strong feeling in the book [...] "Then his treatment of the Whig criminals Sidney and Russell, is very shabby [...] "You will tell me by-and-bye what you think of this. I own that I read the book with breathless interest, in spite of occasional indignations, but I am now reading Grote"s new volume of his ""History of Greece,"" and, upon my word, I find the contrast of his calm, stately, tranquil narrative very soothing. In short, I doubt if Macaulay"s book will go down as a standard addition to our [italics]historical[end italics] library, though it must always keep a high place among the specimens of English rhetoric."
