Author's Note

The Inner History of the Federal Cause 1880–1900

These articles though unrevised ought to be worth £250 after my death to either Age or Argus. Though strictly truthful and fair so far as I can make them they are very personal and unflinching in their candour—A reader must allow for the inevitable bias of any actor in such events—Those who desire to know the part the writer himself played in the public debates or campaigns must turn to the Reports published officially or by the press—I have written these articles to provide one of the few legacies I can leave my wife and children.

ALFRED DEAKIN note

[1900]
