    Remarks that it 'is rather difficult to write anything interesting about Herbert Spencer', and then concludes 'Mr. Spencer is now 72 years of age, and it is quite impossible for him ever to complete the work to which he has put his hand. In the last thirty years he has written 5,000 closely-printed pages, and, what is more surprising, has found a considerable number of readers to appreciate them'.
