All these important State Papers, excepting those referring to the earliest of the Four Periods, are now laid before the Public for the first time. They are published from the Originals, which have been preserved in the family of Thomas Clifford, Esq. of Tixall, in the county of Stafford, whose mother, the Honourable Barbara Aston, represented Gertrude Sadler, Lady Aston, grand-daughter and sole heiress of Sir Ralph Sadler.
The Collection consists of four separate Sets of Letters, relating almost entirely to the affairs of Scotland; the First, on the negociation for disuniting that kingdom from France, and for the Family Alliance against England; the Second, on the Scottish Reformation; the Third, on the Rebellion in the North of England in 1569; and the Last, on the subject of Queen Mary. In these transactions Sir Ralph Sadler, as Ambassador from England, bore an important part, and displayed great abilities as a Statesman. His Letters, illustrated by the Memoir, and the Historical Notes from the distinguished pen of Mr WALTER SCOTT, throw a strong light on one of the most interesting periods in British History,
