INTRODUCTION.

The Royal Family of England, which by the Act of Succession includes all the Members of the illustrious House of Brunswick, have long been regarded by the country, as a species of public property in which the humblest subject in the land, claims a deep and lively interest. Whatever, consequently, stands immediately connected with the honour and the happiness of those exalted individuals, necessarily becomes a source of national concern, nor can any of them be subjected to indignity or insult, without diffusing over the public mind a corresponding portion of sympathy and regret. It is obvious, too, that the nearer the Members of the Royal Family approximate to the Throne, the deeper is the interest which Englishmen are prompted to feel in all that relates to them.
