PREFACE.

THIS work violates no confidence. It is not written to please any family, or party, nor to uphold any reputation, unless truth can uphold it.

It is written by one near in blood to the deceased, but not too near, as be trusts, for impartiality. If otherwise unfit for the office which he has assumed, at least he is free from those disturbing causes arising from family and party connection, which too often convert the biography of a statesman into a panegyric and a satire.
