The late Sir John Bourinot had
completed and revised the following pages some months before his
lamented death. The book represents more satisfactorily, perhaps, than
anything else that he has written the author's breadth of political
vision and his concrete mastery of historical fact. The life of Lord
Elgin required to be written by one possessed of more than ordinary
insight into the interesting aspects of constitutional law. That it has
been singularly well presented must be the conclusion of all who may
read this present narrative.
