The selection of the Speeches was for the most part made by friends who were well acquainted with the history of the times, and in whose judgment reliance could be placed. The greater part of them were contained in the four volumes published by Messrs. Black and Longman, in 1838, who have kindly consented to the use here made of that publication. It was inscribed to Marquess Wellesley, K.G., in the following terms :* To the Most Noble Richard Marquess Wellesley, successively the Governor-General of India, British Ambassador in Spain, Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, and Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, these volumes are inscribed as a tribute most justly due to so illustrious a statesman; and in commemoration of the rare felicity of England, so rich in genius and capacity for affairs, that she can spare from her service such men as Lord Wellesley."
