This work is also published in Parts, 6s. each, of which four are now published. It has often been regretted that the proceedings of the House of Commons, during the thirteenth Parliament of Great Britain, which met in May, 1768, and was dissolved in June, 1771, should, in consequence of the strict enforcement of the standing order for the exclu sion of strangers from the gallery of the House, have remained nearly a blank in the his ory of the country. The debates of this period, were, however, fortunately taken down by a member of the House, Mr. Henry Cavendish, and the editor having discovered his MSS., and obtained permission to print them, they are now given to the world. The collection contains upwards of two hundred speeches by Burke, which have never seen the light; together with a number of the most valuable speeches of Mr. George Grenville, Lord North, Mr. Dunning, Mr. Thurlow, Mr. Wedderburn, Mr. Fox, Colonel Barre, Mr., afterwards Chief Justice, Blackstone, etc. etc. It embraces the whole of the stirring period of the publication of the Letters of Junius, and exhibits the feeling which prevailed in the House and in the country, previous to the unhappy contest which took place between Great Britain and her American Colonies.
