A Man of Parts

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894), Kidnapped, chapter XII:
I will add the rest of what I have to say about my friend, that he was skilled in all kinds of music, but principally pipe-music; was a well-considered poet in his own tongue; had read several books both in French and English; was a dead shot, a good angler, and an excellent fencer with the small sword as well as with his own particular weapon.
Hat tip: Mrs. Laudator, who has been reading Kidnapped aloud to me.
