To them is prefixed, in order to explain the narratives followed, Sir Robert Careys account of the circumstances of Queen Elizabeths death, and of the manner in which he brought the news to Edinburgh.

Carey, whose Memoirs were first published by the Earl of Cork in 1759, was the youngest son of Henry Carey, first Lord Hunsdon, and the grandson of Mary, sister of Ann Boleyn. His kinship to the Queen and his gifts as a courtier secured him the favour of Elizabeth, and when that sovereign died he held the office of Warden of the Middle Marches. As soon as Carey perceived that her end was near, he resolved to use the opportunity to gain the favour of her successor, in the conviction, as he tells us, that it was neither unjust nor unhonest for him to do so.

The candid selfishness of his defence explains his character, but contemporaries as well as later historians censured his haste to profit by the death of his kinswoman and benefactress. It hath set so wide a mark of ingratitude on him, writes Weldon, that it will remain to posterity a greater blot than the honour he obtained afterwards will ever wipe out.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
