Burney's History is not a period History it is a General History, and it is an intensely personal one. The age of Burney was an age of frank speaking, and one must not ignore this fact when reading works of that period. Burney often uses words which have, since his day, received a more special meaning, and if this is kept in mind many of his so-called "savage and harsh strictures" will not appear unfair.
