"It would be difficult to find a life presenting so many prominent topics for the biographer's pen as that of Lord Ixrvat, At one time a mountain brigand, hunted from cave to cave—at another a laced courtier, welcomed by the first cirele in Europe. In summer a powerful Baron, with nearly half a kingdom at his back—in winter, dragged ignominiously to the block. By turns a soldier, a statesman, a Highland chief, a judge administering the law of the land, and, if tradition speak truth, a Jesuit and a parish priest. Contemporary with Lovat, born and reared near the same spot, and closely entwined with the more memorable incidents of his career, was one whose character and history were as different from his, as the sunshine from the shade. If Lovat's history be a type of tbe old reign of fraud and force, rendered the more conspicuous by protruding into an era of transition, Forbes is a character as strongly marked in its solitary anticipation of an age still further advanced in integrity and humanity."—Introductory Notice.
