Excerpt from Romances of the French Theatre

That was, in effect, though not of course in actual words, the exclamation drawn from Cardinal Newman when James Anthony Froude told the truth in a contribution to a series of Lives of the Saints. That was also, in effect, Matthew Arnold's exclamation when Prof. Dowden told the truth, or as much of it as he could ascertain, about Shelley. More than one reviewer has, from time to time, raised similar objections to the present writer's essays in biographical veracity. It is not the sort of thing which it is worth while to get angry about: but it may be worth while to review the objections philosophically and see what they amount to, and on what principles, if on any, they depend.
