    Observes: 'Whilst so much remains yet to be done for the Mathematics by all nations; and, to take a more contracted view, while so much is wanting in this country to render us at all fit for competition with the mathematicians of the Continent, any such appearance of high preeminence in this line, as we have now been contemplating, delights us—in a degree which we are not likely to be followed by the sympathy of all our readers' (510).
