THE publisher of the present Volume cannot but regret that circumstances, of an imperious nature, have rendered it absolutely necessary that the WHOLE OF THE DOCUMENTS upon the subject of the Inquiry into the Conduct of Her ROYAL HIGHNESS THE PRINCESS OF WALES, should be submitted to the examination of the public.

This being the only means by which a fair and impartial judgment can be formed upon the “Delicate Investigation,”—the publisher conceives that he is merely performing an act of justice in delivering to the world a genuine and unmutilated copy of the suppressed book, as it was printed by him in the year 1807, under the direction of the late Mr. PERCEVAL.

Of the herd of spurious works on this subject, which are so industriously obtruded upon public notice, it is unnecessary to speak. The garbled extracts, also, that have been given in the Newspapers are but ill calculated to satisfy the public concerning this highly important and interesting Inquiry.

In addition to the documents printed in 1807, the present work will be found to contain a Minute of Cabinet of January 25, 1807; a Minute of Council of April 21, in the same year; and a Letter from the Princess of Wales to the King, dated the 2nd of October, 1806.

To this edition, exclusively, are added, A Narrative of the Recent Events, that have led to the publication of the “ Book;"--and A Statement of Facts, relative to the Child now under the protection of Her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales; disclosing circumstances of great interest, which are exclusively in the possession of the publisher.

Crane Court, Fleet Street,

March 19, 1813.
