This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1877 edition. Excerpt: ... position of his subj ects; and he has the power to do so. The following suggests his intellectual difference from Prince Hal. Like Caesar's Brutus he believes in the efficacy of reasons, and requires a full explanation of the Salic law, which he thoughtfully considers before acting. He evinces an instant recognition of the stragetic importance of Scotland. Note the skill with which he moralizes on the ingratitude of traitors; and note also " the sham of ceremony passage " in which he dwells in a masterly manner on a very trite idea. Note also how he goes to the heart of the matter in the passage beginning " So if a son that is by his father sent." How quickly he is able to see the justice of Williams' argument! His lack of the sense of humor is referred to above and need not be emphasized here. Take it all in all, Henry is the plain, simple, sympathetic man who as a king displays the same qualities in a larger field and on a grander scale. But the qualities do not alter. Modesty and humility increase in proportion to his exalted position. He is drawn both as a man and as a personification. As a personification of the perfect king he represents all good, manly qualities turned in a true Christian spirit wholly to the service of his people. VII.
