Notes:

Wood-engraved portrait of Samuel taken from the picture of Daniel and Samuel, in the section entitled The Statesmen, following on from Moses.

SAmuel that seemed to have been born for nothing but to pray, and to pass away his life in the Tabernacle of God, got very forward at Court, and in the managing of the great affairs of State. His Birth is a Miracle, his Life an Example, and his Death the immortality of his virtues. He was one of those infants that are expected a long time before they come, that are the sons of so many vowes, and that pay the expectation of their Nativity by the happiness of their life. It belongs onely to great things to be seen before they are, by presages, by desired, by hopes, and to make themselves be seen, after they are no more, by an eternal memory. (p. 979)
