He confided it to me in order that the occurrences which had led to the dissolution of Lord Greys administration should, if necessary, be correctly explained in case these transactions should, in my own lifetime, become the subject of historical discussion or controversy.
And he foresaw that the time might arrive when the publication of Memoirs by other persons, who were concerned in the events of that period, would render it desirable that the exact truth should be known, although, from consideration to some eminent statesmen now no more, it could not be published at an earlier period. He left it to my own sense of propriety to make this publication when it should be opportune and necessary.I accepted this trust at the hands of Lord Hatherton.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
