PREFACE

The following papers were intrusted to me for publication by Sir Charles Trevelyan, the present Governor of the Madras Presidency, on his departure from England, under the conviction that the fìrst germ and subsequent growth of what now seems destined to become a mighty movement should be placed on permanent public record. My task has been very simple. I have merely arranged the various documents in chronological order, and left them to speak for themselves. Even the errors in orthography, which I might have corrected with little trouble, have been allowed to stando My duty has been to lay before the public a series of originaI papers and articles, in such a shape as to present a complete history of a great enterprise; and I have acted on the principle that even inaccuracies of scholarship, when regarded as historical, become interesting and instructive.

The intelligent reader will, of course, bear in mind that more than a quarter of a century has elapsed since the date of the fìrst of these papers, and that the state of things under the pressure of which they were written is greatly changed.
