TO

SIR JOHN HOLKER, Q.C., M.P.,

ETC., ETC.,

HER MAJESTY'S ATTORNEY-GENERAL.

MY DEAR SIR JOHN,

I gratefully avail myself of your permission to associate your name with this attempt to trace the political career of our common leader,

You without doubt are aware of every circumstance of the illustrious life I have striven to portray, but there are unfortunately many who are not so well informed, and it is for them that I have written. When, however, the whole truth shall have been told as I fear is not the case even now- -concerning the great chief whom we are proud to follow, there can be but one opinion with regard to Lord Beaconsfield and to his multitudinous critics.

With every sentiment of regard and of gratitude for the many kindnesses I have received at your hands,

Believe me, my dear Sir John,

Yours very faithfully,

FRANCIS HITCHMAN.

13, ST. GEORGE'S SQUARE, REGENT'S PARK, N.W.
