TO THE

RIGHT HON. W. E. GLADSTONE,

CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER.

SIR,

My feelings of personal respect, and admiration of your talents and principles as a Statesman, have induced me to ask your permission to dedicate to you this book.

Your sanction is the more gratifying, as I have informed you that I have expressed opinions, on some points, not in accordance with

your own.

I have the honour to be,

SIR,

Your obedient servant,

THOMAS GEORGE SHAW.

THOMAS GEORGE SHAW.

LONDON: October, 1864,
