Excerpt from A Selection From the Despatches, Treaties and Other Papers of the Marquess Wellesley, K. G. During His Government of India Of Fort William College, and expounded and vindicated his measures in State Papers, which as literary compositions, de signed for a practical purpose, are models of such handiwork, and the study of which is in itself a manifold and invaluable training for the young aspirant to distinction in a School of Modern History. The responsibility involved in the task of selection is by no means a light one. It is, indeed, often far easier to determine what to adopt, than what to reject. So rich in lessons of political wisdom, and in able and instructive discussions of great problems, are the compositions of Lord Wellesley, that in spite of the bulk of this volume, I am inevitably reminded of Lord Clive's strong exclamation, when taxed with helping himself too freely to the treasures of the Nawab of Bengal. I can at least say, that no pains have been spared to make these dig/26m memora of a great and scholarly statesman as representative as possible, and by the omission of minor, occasional, and per sonal matters, tentative measures, and reduplicated instructions, to gain space for exhibiting the administration in its broader bearings, mature form, and natural sequence. A careful reperusal of the entire correspondence has led to the rejection of a few pages included in the former list, and to the insertion of many short but important extracts, which, on reconsideration, it seemed undesirable to sacrifice. The documents have been arranged, for clearness and facility of reference, under distinct heads. To each paper has been prefixed a very short note of its contents, and a running analysis, along the top of the pages, has been added, indicating at once the chief subject of each page, and the general and connected drift of the whole paper. Thus, an Index, which must have either added unduly to the size of the volume, or caused the omission of valuable matter, has been avoided though it may be well to add that this was not an after thought, but was designed before the selection was made.
