Raleigh on Bacon

Sir Walter Raleigh once spoke of him by way of comparison (whose judgment may well be trusted), "That the Earl of Salisbury was an excellent speaker, but no good penman; that the Earl of Northampton (the Lord Henry Howard) was an excellent penman, but no good speaker; but that Sir Francis Bacon was eminent in both."
