Excerpt from Life of the Earl of Derby, K. G

The published works from which information is to be obtained, independently of periodical literature, are the Croker Papers, the Correspondence of William the Fourth and Lord Grey; the Greville Memoirs, which, however, must be read with caution; the Life of Lord Lyndhurst, by Sir Theodore Martin; Lord Malmesbury's Diary in Memoirs of an Ex Minister; the Life of Lord Melbourne, by Mr. M'cullagh Torrens; the Life of Lord Palmerston, by Lord Dalling and the Hon. Evelyn Ashley; the Life of the Prince Consort; the Dispatches of the Duke of Wellington; and the Life of Bishop Wilber force. But it must be remembered that I come before, not after, the vates sacer, whoever he may be, who is destined to give us a full and perfect portraiture of the great Patrician, to sound all the depths and shallows of his very blended character, and to show the man as he really was, stripped of all conventionalities.
