Not long after Pawcett sdeath, his widow requested me to write a memoir of her husband. She added that the remaining members of his family concurred in the request. I, of course, could not hesitate to accept the task, though fully sensible of the responsibility as well as of the honour. I was qualified for the duty in this respect, that Fawcett had been for thirty years one of my most intimate and valued friends. It would be strange if, during that period, I had not learnt to understand one of the simplest and most transparent of men. Our mutual regard never cooled: it rather grew warmer: but after the first ten years our intercourse had ceased to be so frequent as before. I had not followed with any minute attention the details of his political career, and I could therefore not have hoped to put together a satisfactory narrative, had I not counted upon the help of better informed persons. A ny shortcomings in the following pages must, however, be due to faults of my own: for I have had most generous assistance, which it is now a pleasure and a duty to acknowledge in detail. Mrs. Fawcett has done everything in her power.
