Excerpt

To Lord Rosebery's friends, and to all lovers of good prose, it has long been a matter for regret that it was difficult to obtain anything like a complete set of his literary and historical addresses and occasional writings, or his consent to their republication. Most were out of print; some had been issued only in small private editions; some had never been rescued from the ties of the daily press.

Their author has been so good as to yield to my importunity, and permit me to make a collection of these opuscula, he himself standing aside in benevolent neutrality. The responsibility for the selection--and for the o original importunity-- is therefore mine.

No speeches dealing with controversial polities have been included. A few notes have been added, and now and then a sentence has been omitted which had a purely local and topical application. Otherwise the chapters are reprinted as they were first spoken or written.

JOHN BUCHAN.
