Excerpt from V. R. I: Queen Victoria, Her Life and Empire
It is to be regretted that this necessity for speed and comparative haste makes it also necessary to be very brief. For in a long reign there is so much of impor tance that may and should be told that the narrow limits of one volume, presenting pictorial as well as written description of our times, cannot suffice. I had collected many interesting letters from men of mark telling of the great events of the hour, and had in tended in this volume to give those speaking of days which have passed fifty years ago. But space defies the attempt; they are left aside, illustrative and in teresting as many are. Only the strongest and high est surging of the currents of those days may be picked out as the stream of time hurries past.
