Excerpt from An Anecdotal History of the British Parliament, From the Earliest Periods to the Present Time: With Notices of Eminent Parliamentary Men, and Examples of Their Oratory
The encouragement given to the previous tentative work has led the present writer to follow it up by the expansion and rearrangement of its materials; inﬂuenced, as regards the latter point (in the Personal section of the volume), in some measure by the suggestion of a competent and courteous critic in the Quarterly Review, who has since given his remarks upon the book a~more enduring circulations] As regards expansion, the former work included but a small portion of the material contained in the present for the vein was found to be more rich as it was further explored. To deal with it in a manner likely to secure a satisfactory result has required the leisure of many years, the difficulty at length having been to confine the gathered material within moderate limits, while not omitting (it is believed) any important or characteristic fact in either the historical or the biographical branch of the subject.
