Excerpt from H. R. H. The Prince of Wales: An Account of His Career, Including His Birth, Education, Travels, Marriage and Home Life; And Philanthropic, Social and Political Work
_the aim of this Boole is to give an accurate record of the life of the Prince of Wales. No previous attempt has heen made to present even a partially complete biography of His Royal Highness, although isolated portions of the Prince's manifold activities have been treated of hy various writers. Thus the author of the present work acknow ledges considerable indebtedness to Sir pv. H. Russell's fascinating volumes on the Prince and Princess of Wales's tour in the East and the Prince of Wales's tour in India (from which the Illustrations on pp. 99 and 105 are reproduced); to Sir H. C. Burdett's Prince, Princess, and People, which deals mainly with the philanthropic side of the Prince's life and character; and to Mr. A. H. Beavan's Marlhorough House and its Occupants. A large numher of memoirs have also heen consulted, including those of the Prince Consort, Baron Stochmar, Mr. Charles Greville, Dr. Norman Macleod, Canon Kingsley, Dean Stanley, and Archhishop Magee.
