Excerpt from A Selection From the Writings, Prose and Poetical, of the Late Henry W. Torrens, Esq., B. A., Bengal Civil Service, and of the Inner Temple, Vol. 1: With a Biographical Memoir
Of the biographical memoir I desire to say, that the pages which record Mr. Torrens' ea... rly life and close with his departure from England, have been supplied by one the best able to do justice to the subject, and whose interesting and eloquent narra tive I received with infinite satisfaction. Beyond this I never contemplated more than a slight sketch of my friend's Indian career. It has so happened that the name of Mr. Torrens has been intimately associated with one great political question, our Afghan policy, and on that subject I have expressed myself freely. His career beyond this, as a public officer, is told in the simple record of his appoint ments, and that he filled them all with distinguished ability and zeal.
