PRE FACE.

THE Reader is here presented with an Account of the Proceedings which took place at the Westminster and Middlesex Elections, in the month of November last. The Volume consists of a Collection of the Addresses of the respective Candidates; of their Speeches, as well as the Speeches of their Friends, both on the Hustings and at Public Meetings; of the Resolutions passed at those Meetings; and also of the numerous Advertisem ents, Letters, Hand-bils, Songs, &c. &c. which made their appearance during the said Elections. To point out the utility of such a Collection, after the favourable reception which similar publications have invariably met with, would be superfluous. The utmost impartiality has been strictly adhered to. In no instance has the Compiler

given given any opinion of his own, upon the several topics brought forward; but, in making a Collection of every thing that he has been able to obtain, he has done his best to enable the Public, both now and hereafter, to form a correct judgment upon subjects which have engaged so large a portion of their attention.
