DEAR LADY BLENNERHASSETT,
your Frau von Staël we have the contribution of German historical scholarship to the Centenary of 1789. The following pages, in which I have endeavoured to test the ideas underlying the French Revolution by the “moral laws of nature and of nations,” may, perhaps, serve, in some sort, to supplement your admirable volumes. However that may be, your kind permission to write your name here, enables me not only to pay a tribute to personal friendship, but to acknowledge the debt of gratitude laid upon me, as upon all scientific students of history throughout the world, by your masterly and monumental work.
Most sincerely yours,
W. S. LILLY.
ATHENÆUM Club, London.
