SOCIAL, LITERARY, POLITICAL.

BY

HENRY LYTTON BULWER.. ESQ. M.P.

Nature and truth are the same every where, and reason shows them
every where alike. But the accidents and other causes, which give rise
and growth to opinions both in speculation and practice, are of infinite
variety.—Bolingbroke on the true Use of Retirement and Study.

Reverere conditores Deos, numina Deorum. Reverere gloriam veterem,
et hanc ipsam senectutem quæ in bomine venerabilis, in arbibus sacra
est. Sit apud te honor antiquitati, sit ingentibus faeti, sit fabulis quoque,
nihil ex cujusquam dignitate, nihil ex libertate, nihil etiam ex jactatione
decerpseris.—Plinius Maximo Suo S.

IN TWO VOLUMES.

VOL. I.

SECOND EDITION REVISED.

LONDON:
RICHARD BENTLEY, NEW BURLINGTON STREET.
(SUCCESSOR TO HENRY COLBURN.)

Nor is this all :-the present dedication is not only an ordinary tribute paid to friendshipit is a tribute paid to a friend whom I esteem as much for his public principle as his private worth. And, indeed, it is no small consolation, in thus entering upon a new career, to feel that whatever may be my fate as an author
