The name of Milton requires not the sanction of rank or greatness : But as the subject of the present volume must necessarily engage the deep attention of his Majesty's Government; and as there is no other work in which that subject is so ably and impartially discussed, I have presumed to inscribe it to your Lordshipand am, my Lord, with profound respect,

Obedient Servant,

THE EDITOR.
