Sample text

Motley straightway made for the Dutch Archives, while the rest of the family spent most of their time at the beach, and occassionally taking a swim in the North Sea. At the hotel in which he resided he had the good fortune to make the acquaintance of many officials in the government, who frequently dined there, and it may be supposed that he spoke to them about his projected history. While the visit to the Hague was for the purpose of work, Motley's family took the opportunity to thoroughly enjoy themselves.

The true merit of a great book must be learned from the book itself. Our part has been rather to select varied specimens of style and power. Of Motley's antecedents we know nothing. If he has previously appeared before the public, his reputation has not crossed the Atlantic. It will not be so now.
