1814.ADVERTISEMENT.
In presenting to the Public the Letters of LORD
NELSON to LADY
HAMILTON, something may justly be expected
elucidatory of them.
Their mutual attachment is so generally known,
that for the Editors to have given notes, however
desirable and explanatory, might not, perhaps,
have been deemed perfectly decorous.
They now stand on their own real merits. Some
parts (though not very numerous) have been
suppressed, from the most honourable feelings to
individuals, as they would certainly have given pain.
That portion of Letters now offered to the BRITISH
NATION, written by the first of her Naval
Commanders, will shew his most private
sentiments of men and measures, of countries and
their rulers.
It is the duty of the Editors to state, that every
letter has been most accurately transcribed, and
faithfully compared with the originals in their
possession.
Should our IMMORTAL HERO have expressed an
erroneous opinion of some individuals and of
things, let us ever remember, they were written
(often under the feelings of sickness and ofdisappointment) by him who so repeatedly fought,
and almost as frequently bled, for our country—for
his "DEAR ENGLAND;" and let us never forget,
that to him we owe more than to any man for our
existence as a great and powerful Nation.
His country has truly honoured him; and it is not
presumptuous in the Editors to affirm, that his
deeds will be remembered, not only in name, but in
their consequences, by our remotest posterity.
Were we to dedicate them, unto whom should we?
—To the BRITISH NAVY; as the genuine
sentiments of a true seaman—the first even of
their own Heroes; for NELSON could forego all
private feelings, all selfish motives, for that which
will ever be the first object of a truly great and
brave man—the glory and happiness of his
country.
Our task, which has, from various causes, been
attended with more difficulties than could be
imagined, is thus far accomplished; and we have
the pleasure to inform the public, that a very large
collection of LORD NELSON'S most important
public and private correspondence, &c. with the
most distinguished characters (at home and
abroad) is now in preparation for the press. Many
of the documents will certainly throw a light on
political transactions at present very imperfectly
understood; and those which we intend to present
to the world, we doubt not, will be found more than
usually interesting.CONTENTS.
