Excerpt from The Lives of the Most Eminent British Painters and Sculptors, Vol. 5 of 5
I have incurred obligations to many friends during the course of the work, but to so much as to Mr. Lockhart, who not only suggested the undertaking, but, when in town, has been so kind as to help me in its progress, often pruning what was redundant, and bringing light to what was obscure. Mr. Southey has likewise aided me, and by his too favourable expressions regard ing the merits of my first volume, encouraged me much with the rest. Lord Dover also has afforded me, in many cases, the advantage of his taste and knowledge. To the friendship of Sir Andrew Halliday I am indebted for all that is interesting in the life of Cosway; and the communications of those accomplished antiquaries, Mr. Charles Kirkpatrick Sharpe, of Hoddom, and Mr. David Laing, of Edinburgh, were invaluable to me when treating of artists of Scottish birth. Of the mem bers of the Royal Academy, my friends, Mr. Chantrey and Mr. Wilkie, have assisted me the most; not so much with direct communications.
