MEMOIR OF LORD BOLINGBROKE.
By GEORGE WINGROVE Cooke, Esq. 2 vols. 8vo.
THERE are few characters recorded in English history, who have filled so important a space in the eyes of their contemporaries, who have been more highly extolled by their friends, and who have wrung a reluctant acknowledgment of the superiority of their talents from their bitterest enemies,* than that very singular and eminent person who forms the subject of Mr. Cooke's biography. At the same time, there are few, the blossoms of whose fame have so rapidly faded away under the hand of Time, whose name is so seldom heard in political disquisitions, or in the walks which he once adorned, of literature and philosophy; and over whose writings, which society once beheld with curiosity and with awe, the occasional eye of the scholar and the man of letters is alone seen to glance, more for the purpose of completing a knowledge of the literature of the time, than for any instruction which they are calculated to afford. Yet Bolingbroke was a man adorned with the richest gifts of nature; and in whom the original powers of his mind were as early and boldly developed, as they were afterwards cultivated and matured. We think it is Dr. Johnson who observes, " that no man distinguishes himself in after life, in whom the superiority of his talents could not have been discovered in his youth;”-if so, the dawning light wbich early burst into the full effulgence of genius, in Bolingbroke's youthful days, may corroborate the observation of the moralist. Mr. Cooke says, ' He was removed from Eton to Christ-Church, where bis great natural advantages had more facility for development. His wit and genius soon distinguished him among his companions, and he already assumed a superiority which he was destined always to maintain. His extraordinary talents forced themselves into general notice, and his tutors confessed that in him they had no common pupil. His original and unquiet curiosity startled and perplexed them, and his prodigious strength of memory and quick apprehension excited their astonishment. His dashing and brilliant style of conversation was the admiration of his friends ;. . .... his tenacious memory and strong reasoning powers, rendered him an antagonist to be dreaded even by those who had laboured most diligently at
Walpole dreaded him, even when he had disarmed him ; and watched him even at the lowest ebb of his fortunes, and when he was lying like a wreck on the shore. • While he was engaged with the Pretender, the authorities at home (says Mr. Cooke) dreaded his talents and felt the force of his influence. They knew the value of his assistance, and the confusion which must follow his defection ; and personally interested as they were in preventing his return to England, they thought that abroad he was a more dangerous enemy than he could be at home. It was determined, therefore, to attempt to detach him from the cause he had so imprudently espoused, and full powers were sent to the Earl of Stair to treat with him for that purpose. See Cooke's Life, vol. ii. p. 9. Walpole's hatred was the strongest proof of Bolingbroke's talents.
+ H. Walpole, in his Memoirs, says that his father and Bolingbroke were rivals at school. Walpole was older by two years. How.little did they foresee · Them shall the fury passions tear,' &c.
