Though, in this case, it is more likely that there was nothing of the kind, and that the author himself was too lazy to conclude his essay.
Но в данном случае вероятнее, что ничего не было, и что автор сам поленился докончить исследование.

Other than a rather lengthy essay on how I spent my summer vacation which I may show to Kyra in some later year, there's been nothing.
Если не считать довольно-таки длинного эссе о том, как я провел лето, которое, возможно, я когда-нибудь покажу Кире, я ничего не написал.

But this is a subject for an essay, not a note; and it is best to allow Mr. Lyndon to resume the candid and ingenious narrative of his virtues and defects.
Впрочем, это - скорее тема для самостоятельного очерка, чем для беглой заметки на полях; дадим же опять слово мистеру Линдону, и пусть он возобновит свой откровенный и занимательный рассказ о собственных достоинствах и недостатках.
