Walpole insured in his will that his Memoir of the reign of George II (and that of George III) would not be published until some years after his death. In Walpole's own words: "here are the foibles of an age, no very bad one; treacherous Ministers, mock Patriots, complaisant Parliaments, fallible Princes...I am glad I have an opportunity of saying no worse--yet if I had, I should have used it". Hazen thought that the memoirs of George II and III were Walpole's most important work. Note: Note: 3 kg parcel, extra postage will be required; Octavo
