Excerpt from Speeches in Parliament, Vol. 1 of 3: Of the Right Honourable William Windham; To Which Is Prefixed, Some Account of His Life

The biographical sketch, beiilg intended merely to serve as an introduction to the speeches, is chie?y con fined to the events of Mr. Windham's political life. The writer indeed is ready to confess that his views were narrowed rather by necessity than by choice. As his theme was grateful to him, he would have been glad to forget that he was writing, not a book, but a preface; and that in such an undertaking, all he could reasonably hope for was, to exc1te curiosity, not to gratify'it. That it is intended to be gratified hereafter, from the pen of Mr. George ellis, the~reader will undoubtedly learn with pleasure; In the meantime,' the 'sketch now presented, if it be found faithful in'the outline, may perhaps not be unwelcome to the common observer, though the connoisseur, who demands the scale, the colouring, and the finish of a complete port. Trait, must be content to wait a little longer for the fulfillment of his wishes.
