The letters, however, are so characteristic of the writer, and throw so much light on the policy pursued by the Court of Queen Elizabeth in the affairs of Ireland during the latter years of her reign, that they cannot fail to be interesting, not only to the student of Irish history of that period, but also, generally, to historical scholars.When we consider the nature of many of these letters, and the cautious character of the writer, it is not a little surprising that they should remain extant. It is true Sir Robert Cecil did his best to secure their destruction. Many of them were intended to be strictly secret.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
