Volume II.


1860-1866.  AEt. 46-52.

Residence in England.—­Outbreak of the civil war.—­Letters to the LondonTimes.”—­Visit to America.—­Appointed minister to Austria.—­Lady HARCOURT’S letter.—­Miss Motley’s memorandum.

The winter of 1859-60 was passed chiefly at Oatlands Hotel, Walton-on-Thames.  In 1860 Mr. Motley hired the house No. 31 Hertford Street, May Fair, London.  He had just published the first two volumes of his “History of the Netherlands,” and was ready for the further labors of its continuation, when the threats, followed by the outbreak, of the great civil contention in his native land brought him back from the struggles of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries to the conflict of the nineteenth.
