Excerpt from The United States: An Outline of Political History, 1492-1871

To an Englishman, particularly if lie is visiting America, an outline of the political history of the United States may not be unwelcome. An American, being familiar with the main facts and the general relations of parties, would look for details. It is, therefore, for English rather than American readers that this sketch is intended. If it comes into the hands of an American, his liberality will make allowance for the position of an Englishman who regards the American Commonwealth as the great achievement of his race, and looks forward to the voluntary reunion of the American branches of the race within its pale, yet desires to do justice to the mother country, and to render to her the meed of gratitude which will always be her due.

Should this volume find acceptance it may be followed by a companion volume on the same scale, and treating, necessarily with the same succinctness, the recent history of parties, and the questions of the present day.

A complete list of all the authorities consulted would be out of proportion to the book itself, but special obligations should be acknowledged to Gordon's "History of the American Revolution," Bancroft's "History of the United States," Hildreth's "History of the United States,"
