Sir Walter Scott's eulogy for Lord Byron 1824

Scott first met Byron at Murray's hosue in London. From this first meeting, they formed a great friendship that was to last until Byron's unexpected death in 1824. Scott wrote this eulogy in memory of his friend. In it he recognises that everyone has their faults, but insists that it is Byron's genius that should be remembered.
