DEDICATION

The first of our living Statesmen is not only remarkable

for the largeness of his political views and his consummate

mastery of details, but for the generous confidence with which

he regards the working classes of his fellow-countrymen, and

for his untiring energy in promoting their welfare.

He

is also known as a lover of the beautiful and the noble

in literature, especially as exhibited in the 'poetry of the

heroic ages.

A popular edition of Sir Walter Scott's

Poems has therefore a double right to the sanction of his

name. The writer of the following Memoir avails himself of

the privilege which has been accorded him, and with senti

ments of the deepest admiration and respect, dedicates this

book to Mr. Gladstone.
