From Chapter 41 of the Decline & Fall

The complete series of the Vandal war is related by Procopius in a regular and elegant narrative, (l. i. c. 9 - 25, l. ii. c. 1 - 13,) and happy would be my lot, could I always tread in the footsteps of such a guide. From the entire and diligent perusal of the Greek text, I have a right to pronounce that the Latin and French versions of Grotius and Cousin may not be implicitly trusted; yet the president Cousin has been often praised, and Hugo Grotius was the first scholar of a learned age.
