Excerpt from Old Days in Bohemian London (Recollections of Clement Scott)

This eternal "cry of the heart" could be heard distinctly in every notice Clement Scott ever wrote of the theatre. His love and passionate worship for the stage was indeed so powerful that he compelled attention whenever he wrote about it, and created an enthusiasm which became not only contagious, but infectious - and his following grew, and grew and grew, until he absolutely voiced public opinion as regards things theatrical.

I don't want to speak of him as if he were a theatrical Pope, and consequently infallible - but his notices of new productions were so definite, so convincing, so boldly stated, so fearless and incisive, so analytical and accurately estimated, that they read as if he had put himself in the position of plaintiff, counsel for the defence and judge, too.

His "summing up" was absolutely remarkable.
