Excerpt from The Public and Private Life of His Late Excellent and Most Gracious Majesty, George the Third: Embracing Its Most Memorable Incidents, as They Were Displayed in the Important Relation of Son, Husband, Father, Friend, and Sovereign

In the retreat Of human calamity, and occupying no public place, except in the me mory of a grateful nation, and as the final close must, in the course of events, have been long expected, the demise of his late Majesty constitutes a most memorable epoch, not only in the history of this country, but in the particular lives Of the population. How much of mortal happiness has depended upon his example? How much Of the fate of nations has hung upon his decisions? How deeplyrhas the past been in?uenced, and how largely will the future be swayed, by his opinions, his acts, his conduct, as a man and a Monarch. His late Majesty filled a. Sphere at once glorious and stupendous, never since creation was there an era when so much of good or evil rested on the per sonal character Of a great ruler. New principles started from the increasing light of knowledge, and experiments for weal or woe to mankind resulted according as men were wisely illuminated or dazzled into blindness. In the moral View of his reign, his tory Will ascribe more prodigious power to our departed father, than even to the effects which, in a political sense, have sprung from his rectitude, his firmness, and his genuine piety. Had his late Majesty to that glorious example which he set before his people, not superadded a fixed and noble resistance, alike to sophistry and to menace, instead of being now the foremost country in the world, we should, in all probability, have been a distracted and degraded race, a province of some merciless conqueror, or a prey to more horrid mutual destruction.
