Excerpt from A History of England From the Landing of Julius Caesar to the Present Day
F here is, and it may be hoped there will always be, a demand for a history Of England. It would be idle to pretend that the supply is not large and in many respects adequate. At the same time there are undoubtedly many thousands Of persons who have neither the means to purchase, nor the leisure to peruse, the great standard works with which the genius and industry Of modern historians have happily endowed us, and who yet wish to know something Of their country's past, and to understand how, from very small beginnings, our nation has achieved its present great position among the peoples Of the earth.
