1. THE MARQUESS WELLESLEY. IN INDIA. 1798-1805

Wellesley's claim to greatness.

The last two centuries of Indian history recall to our minds the familiar names of many great Englishmen. To say that that of the Marquess Wellesley was the most illustrious would be, if not an exaggeration, at least unfair. His sphere of action was not that of those who came either before him or after him. Comparison would be unjust. But it may truly be said that Wellesley was the first man to see that the future of India lay in its formations into an Empire directly under the control of the British crown, & to begin to carry out that mighty work. When we realize the vastness of the Empire which he premeditated, the comparative insignificance at the beginning of his rule - of the British possessions & influence in India, when - in fact - we understand the immensity of his schemes & his achievements, then only can we fully appreciate his greatness. However memorable may be the accomplishments
