TO

THE MOST HONORABLE JOHN, MARQUESS OF

BUTE, EARL OF WINDSOR, BARON CARDIFF

OF CARDIFF CASTLE, AND EARL OF DUMFRIES

AND BUTE, IN SCOTLAND,

My LORD,

In dedicating this Compilation to your Lordship, an opportunity occurs of expressing my sincere gratitude with respect for the Honor of the Permission to do so, and for the liberal Patronage which your Lordship has conferred upon me. If the attempt to render the Annals of the British Empire more accessible, should be worthy your Lordship's Approval, much gratification will result to

Your Lordship's

Faithful and obedient Servant,

MACHELL STACE.

The British HISTORICAL INTELLIGENCER, is intended
briefly to convey the Annals of our Empire to the
end of the Reign of George the Third. Some
necessity for its publication may be obvious upon a
comparison of the numerous authorities quoted, with
the indexes of the different Historians.

Although the First Part of the Catalogue of English,
Scotish, Irish, and Welsh Historians contains the
most essential portion of them, a second is intended
for publication, with an Index to both.

In this undertaking considerable aid has been
derived from access to the Libraries of THE
MARQUESS OF BUTE, and THE Right HONORABLE
Thomas GRENVILLE, whose Liberality has left the
most grateful remembrance on the mind of the
compiler.

Somerset Place, Lillle Chelsea.
