PREFACE.

THE present Volume brings the Parliamentary History of this Country down to the Year 1771 ; and, like the preceding Volumes, contains many interesting Debates which have never found their way into any former Collection.

This Debate is printed from a Manuscript in the Hardwicke Collection; and contains the great Lord Camden's first Speech in the House of Peers.

1768. Dec. 15. Minute of Proceedings in the House of Lords, respecting the Discontents in America. From the Hardwicke Papers.
