sented so fiercely all assumption of superiority, and all
haughty claims of exclusive right, th at the wise statesmen
of the day saw no remedy for an indefinite train of na­
tional conflicts, but a combination of the citizens of the
two kingdoms into a new state, where all should enjoy the
same rights and privileges. The bargain between two inde­
pendent governments, calculated to secure equal rights to
the citizens of each— an act of statesmanship unprece­
dented in the history of man— was at last adjusted after
several failui'es. B ut with all the skill and labour bestowed
on it, there remained elements of discord which, perhaps,
it lay not in human genius at once to reconcile, and these
ever smouldering, occasionally burst forth into combus­
tions, which, for nearly half a century, imperiled the
existence of the united government, until the fusion
became final, and the energies long devoted to rivalry and
strife combined to promote the interests of one great
Em pire.
W ith the political, social, and warlike incidents in
which this march of national progress is developed, a
chapter in the history of religion is entwined. A church
which had been associated with despotic ...

It may be, then, that the unofficial, but homely title— the World's
Fair— best expresses this idea of national heartiness and warmth.
Despite every form of legislation which may tend to separate nation
from nation; despite wars and rumors of wars, despite famine and pesti­
lence, the European fathers of the Columbian era shall be drawn to the
city which the Government has chosen as their host. They shall be
overcome by a storm of kindnesses. A s they are, therefore, destined to
visit us, it is a pleasure to pave the way to a sociable and profitable
season by throwing out some information about the characters, the con­
nections and the homes of our coming guests. In the twinkling of an
eye, after April 30, 1893, they will be in Chicago. The world will be
here. No time then to pick up convenient information about our visitors
from Spain, Italy, Portugal, France, Great Britain, Scandinavia, G er­
many, Holland, or Russia. So that now— or rather in this book—the
past and present of these people will be pictured. When we meet them
at the Exposition they will not then be a mass of strangers to be
hurriedly assorted, but so ...

Series of the “ L i v e s o f t h e L o r d C h a n c e l l o r s o f
E n g l a n d ,” I would l'ather expose myself to the imputation
of vanity than of ingratitude ; and I must therefore express
my warm thanks for the favour with which the book has
been received. I may truly say, that within a few weeks
after its publication “ it was on every table, and almost on
every toilette.” Though founded on historical records, and
having solid instruction for its object, it has been as generally
read as popular works of fiction, aiming at nothing beyond
amusement.
I must especially return my thanks for the kind manner in
which, without regard to politics, the book has been treated
in periodical publications — quarterly, monthly, weekly, and
daily. Gentlemen who have written these criticisms have
done ample justice to any merits which they discovered, and
have forborne to dwell upon mistakes which could not have
escaped them.

I n the year 1840 Frederic Ouvry esquire kindly placed at
the disposal of the Camden Society a MS. volume which had
been found amongst certain old papers preserved in the office
of a solicitor in the city of London. Besides a treatise upon
another subject, Mr. Ouvry’s volume contains a transcript of a
collection of letters of Robert Dudley earl of Leycester, written
between the 3rd of April and the 25th of October 15S6, during
his first mission to the Low Countries as lieutenant-general of the
forces sent by queen Elizabeth to the aid of the united provinces
in their great contest against Spain.
In the course of inquiries instituted by the council of the
Camden Society, it appeared that the originals of these letters were
not known to be in existence, but that there were preserved in
the national collection at the British Museum certain other letters
written by and to the earl of Leycester during that same mission
to the Low Countries, which tended to complete the corres­
pondence of which the letters contained in Mr. Ouvry’s volume
formed a part.
Such being the case, it was proposed that a selection from
those letters in the ...

A t a town meeting, held April 23, 1855, the undersigned
were chosen a Committee to audit the accounts of the town
for the year ending March, 1856, and to have them printed
for distribution at the annual March meeting.
The Committee have attended to the duty required of
them. They have examined, in detail, all the items in the
accounts of the Treasurer, Selectmen, Overseers of the Poor
and School Committee, and compared them with each other,
to detect any error which might have occurred in any of the
accounts. They found them correct. The accounts are
made up to the 15th instant. They have also included
estimates of the expenses of the poor to the fifth of next
April, when the contracts for their support will close. The
other estimates are made up to the annual March meeting.

is the first recorded. The village was four and a half years old when he died.
A fter Valleau came Doctors Antoine Reynal, Bernard Gibkins, Claudio
Mercier and Joachim Gingembre. These were residents for varying periods
under the Spanish governors. When Doctor Mercier died, he freed his slave
and gave $10 0 to the poor.
In 1801, responding to several successive appeals, the Spanish authority
at New Orleans, concluded that St. Louis had attained the importance justi­
fying a hospital and a government physician. Morales wrote to D elassus:
In accordance with what the Marquis of Casa Calvo agreed with my predecessor
regarding a hospital and physician for the town of San Luis de Illinois, it is determined
that a physician shall be appointed and that he shall have a salary of $30 a month. The
appointment shall be given to Don Antonio Saugrain. A comfortable room shall be
arranged in the quarters designed for a hospital. This accountant’s office is to supply every­

AN historical work on Eton admits of several modes of
treatment, and commands the interest of persons of
various tastes and habits of thought. According to some, it
should be a biographical register of successive Provosts,
Fellows, and Masters, who have guided a great national
institution through more than four centuries of almost
unbroken prosperity ; according to others, it should trace the
continuous existence of an ecclesiastical corporation, richly
endowed and boasting a picturesque pile of mediaeval buildings ; some think that it should follow the careers of a vast
number of England’s greatest men from the cradle to the
grave ; others that it should be a record of educational
progress, a treatise on grammars and exercises ; while yet
another class would wish to see in it a faithful picture of
school life at different periods, with long accounts of popular
games and boyish adventures.

Much has already been written about Eton from one or
other of these points of view, but no comprehensive work on
the subject has yet appeared. My object has been to produce
a History of Eton in which matters of biography and
architecture, studies and pastimes, old customs and single viii ORIGINAL PREFACE.
