Excerpt from The Life of Joseph Addison Alexander, D.D., Professor in the Theological Seminary at Princeton, New Jersey, Vol. 2
A full and steady light upon the period on which we now enter is denied us. Often when Mr. Alexander was engaged in writing for the press, or absorbed in some other occupa tion, and sometimes merely from a temporary lack of interest in his journal, he made scarcely an entry for a series of years that can shed much light on his daily habits. 've have now arrived at such a period the diary for 1841 and 1842 consist ing of little but rough notes of sermons and lectures, and con taining no account of his studies. Fortunately there are other quarters to which we may look for information and not alto gether without success. The great difficulty will be to avoid a certain appearance of sameness in the treatment of periods which resemble one another like the successive ages of pros perity. Such annals, agreeably to the saying of Montesquieu, are generally tiresome. The effort in this case will be to inter weave as much as possible of the personal element with these tranquil records, and to give as many glimpses as possi ble of the subject of these memoirs; who was still young, being little over thirty, and in the ardour of a disposition that was noted for its masculine energy and its boyish elasticity.
