Excerpt from Older England: Illustrated by the Anglo-Saxon Antiquities in the British Museum in a Course of Six Lectures
Professor Ruskin stated that what he had heard from me was a new revelation of truth and poetry for him; that he had had no idea of the wealth and beauty of ancient English teachings until he heard them from my lips; that I had overturned some of his most cherished opinions, but had given him a new field of thought instead. So much I can say, because the matter of my subject is in exhaustible in its beauty and capability of supplying our intellectual wants. His remarks were noticed by the public journals at the time. For his cordial good-will and endeavour to assist me in my object I wish to thank him thus publicly.
My warm thanks are also due to Sir Talbot Baker for his timely support, and also to General Sir James Alexander, who has so ably filled the chair on subsequent occasions.
