Excerpt from Continental Rulers in the Century

The condition, for instance, of the nearer Eastern Question, when Catherine pressed it forward towards the close of the eighteenth century, must be noticed in relation to its present position.

It will best interpret the objects of those who en trusted me with this task, to survey events, as they come within the scope of my subject, from the great centre of modern thought at Berlin, and so tell the story of Europe's deliverance from Napoleon, as it appears to the eye of those who make use of the best European sources of information.

It must be for another pen than mine, that of Mr. T. H. Escott, to tell more particularly how, under the aegis of George King of Great Britain and Ireland, and of Pitt, Nelson, and Wellington, a nation of fifteen millions did such yeoman service in securing peace for the Old World. That the causes and efiects of the French Revolution must once again be considered and pronounced on here is a clear necessity of the story I have undertaken to tell but I desire to treat the changes of a kindred character which occurred in other capitals besides Paris in a proper sense of proportion, being careful to record as an opinion, that the troubles in France took the peculiarly destructive form with which we associate them on account of special reasons of an historical character, long germinating, whilst the general yearn ing for constitutional and social changes had been felt at an even earlier period at Berlin, Vienna, and in some smaller states of Europe, before they reached Paris, the fair capital of France, on the banks of the Seine.
