NOTES AND QUERIES.

It is hard for us to believe and I do not imagine that Miss Thomson's suggestion expresses her own opinion of what is probable that a man with Richardson's natural abili- ties and orderly mind could receive a good classical education in early life, and yet in maturity be denuded of all knowledge of the dead languages. Though he did endure considerable drudgery in his early days, he, on his own confession, found time for much reading, and had his education been less restricted, his leisure moments would not have been entirely devoted to neglect of the classics.
