PREFACE.

IT is a fact, which cannot have escaped observation,
that while French literature abounds with private
memoirs and personal anecdote, our own is deplorably
deficient in agreeable chronicles of this nature. To the
author, or rather compiler, of this work, the want
appeared to be less owing to the absence of materials,
than to a requisite diligence in bringing them to light ;
in a word, that there existed a supply of latent stores in
our own language (buried, as it were, among voluminous
records and forgotten pamphlets) sufficient to form a
succinct social history of distinguished characters, who
figure more or less in every portion of our annals.

With this view of the subject, it occurred to the
author, that the private history of the Reigns of the
Stuarts and of the Protectorate, their families, and
others intimately connected with the Court, would
present a series of agreeable and instructive anecdotes ;
would furnish the means of introducing the reader to
the principal personages of their day, and of exhibiting



vi PREFACE.

the Monarch and the Statesman in their undress ; while,
at the same time, it would afford an insight into human
character, and a picture of the manners iof the age.

It could not escape the author, that some of the
anecdotes contained in the present volumes, have already
appeared in more than one popular work of modern
date. But it would have been impossible for him to
follow out his intended plan, and to give a complete
and distinct form to his sketches, without partially
treading in the footsteps of other writers : in those
instances, however, where he has been compelled to
make use of the same materials, his researches, when-
ever it was practicable, have been extended to the
fountain-head.

The author now ventures to put forth the present
volumes as a portion only of his labours. Should others
agree with him in thinking that a work like the present
has, in any degree, supplied a desideratum in our
literature, he will consider himself fully repaid for the
trouble it has cost him ; at the same time, he is free to
confess that he would have been as well pleased, had
the task fallen into abler hands.
