TO THE

DEAR LORD LICHFIELD,

There is no one to whom a critical examination, divested of all party considerations, of the changes effected in

the Labour Laws of this country could be more appropriately

dedicated than to your Lordship.

I therefore hope you will permit me to connect your name with these pages, and thus give me an opportunity of saying what a lively recollection I have of hours of earnest conversation at Shugborough and elsewhere on various public ques

tions, and how sincerely

I am

Your Lordship’s faithful Servant,

JAMES EDWARD DAVIS.

THE TEMPLE
