IT appears to be unnecessary and inexpedient to delay the publi cation of the last portion of these papers, which contain some record of the events occurring between the year 1852 and the close of the year 1860, a period already remote from the present time, and relat ing almost exclusively to men of. The last generationu I have little to add to the notices prefixed by me to the two preceding portions of this work, but I am grateful for the length of days Which has enabled me to complete the taskoconfided to me by Mr. Greville three and twenty years ago, and to leave behind me a record of that delightful company to which I was bound by the closest ties of intimacy and friendship. On looking back upon the first half of the present cen tury, I believe that we were too unconscious of the exceptional privi leges we enjoyed, and that we did not sufficiently appreciate the re markable gifts of the statesmen, the craters, the historians, the poets, and the Wits who shed an incomparable lustre on the politics, the literature, and the social intercourse of those years. Of these per sonages some traces are to be found in the preceding volumes and in these pages.
