This was an excellent work, and enjoyable to read, with thought-provoking subject matter, though somewhat slow to start.

“I have read two books of the Iliad, besides being pretty familiar with passages such as the speech of Phoenix in the ninth book, the fight of Hector and Ajax in the fourteenth, the appearance of Achilles unarmed and his heavenly armour in the eighteenth, and the funeral games in the twenty-third. I have also done some Hesiod, a little scrap of Thucydides, and a lot of the Greek Testament.... I wish there was only one dialect, all the same."
“I have done some mathematics, including the first six and the eleventh and twelfth books of Euclid; and algebra as far as simple equations."
(part one, at Marygreen, section 6)
