The Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides

The following is from The Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides by James Boswell:

"He was of an admirable pregnancy of wit, and that pregnancy much improved by continual study from his childhood; by which he had gotten such a promptness in expressing his mind, that his extemporal speeches were little inferior to his premeditated writings. Many, no doubt, had read as much and perhaps more than he; but scarce ever any concocted his reading into judgement as he did."--Baker's Chronicle
