King George III and the Politicians

Excerpt

THESE lectures are published as they were uttered, with the addition of some detail which had to be omitted, especially from the fourth and fifth.

I wish to thank the University of Oxford for honouring me with the invitation to deliver the Ford Lectures -- the highest honour, in my opinion, which an English historian can receive. I also take this opportunity of thanking the Wardens and Fellows, past and present, of All Souls College, for many years my home, whose library, traditions, and conversation formed my mind as an historian. But I owe most of all to my wife, whose lovingkindness has kept me alive to prepare this book. I dedicate it to her.

R. P.
