W. B. Hodg'son delivered and published his two excellent Lectures. Meanwhile Mr. John Morley had been maturing the admirable study of Turgot, which afterwards appeared in his 'critical in 1886. This work, like all others from Mr. Morley's pen, is so artistically com plete in the treatment of its subject, that it may seem almost presumptuous, at least in me, to further cultivate the same field. One of my apologies is that some may possibly desire to know more about Turgot's conduct as Minister than they can gather from Mr. Morley's essay. It is true'that his ministerial career, as Mr. Morley remarks.
