The life of the cardinal, by Salazar de Mendoza, Cronica del gran cardinal Don Pedro Gonzalez de Mendoza (Toledo, 1625), is disoursive and garrulous but valuable.
He was not only without political or military capacity, but was so garrulous that he could not keep a secret.
The materials for his biography are very numerous; he was regarded with universal curiosity and admiration in his lifetime; and, besides, he left a garrulous autobiography in verse.
He is a very shrewd and garrulous fellow.
His age, too, while garrulous to a degree, seems to have been free from the slightest taint of boasting.
The lively if rather garrulous book on which his title to remembrance rests, appeared at Vienna in 1784, in the author's own Latin, and in a German translation by Professor Krail of the university of Pest.
