RIGHT HON. WM. F. COWPER-TEMPLE, M.P.
MY DEAR TEMPLE,
Had Lady Palmerston been spared to us, my respectful dedication of this work would have been to her who felt so deep an interest in its subject, and who offered me the means for accomplishing the task which at her wish I undertook.
Alas! she has departed from a world which her noble and kind nature, her grace and her goodness, so long adorned. Το
you I am, next to her, most indebted ; and, in inscribing to you these volumes, I am testifying my gratitude for the help you have given me in recording the career of a Statesman who rendered the name of Temple, already historical, one of the proudest illustrations of our country. Yours, my dear Temple, very sincerely,
H. L. BULWER.
HERON HOUSE, RICHMOND.
