Nothing but a strong, and almost conscientious, objection to anonymous authorship, excepting in those cases in which the mode of publication makes it necessary, could have induced me to place my name on the same title-page which contains those of Pascal and Bacon, Vinet and Chalmers.
Having returned some time ago from India as an invalid, I happened to take up M. Vinet's Etudes sur Pascal, and was greatly interested with its perusal. Having mentioned it to a friend, who is a great admirer of Vinet's writings, but who was not acquainted with this work, he suggested to me that I might render good service by translating it. Having then no regular employment, I was not unwilling to follow his advice. In the course of the work, I was constantly reminded of passages in the writings of Lord Bacon and in those of Dr Chalmers, and resolved to append some of these passages in the form of Notes.
