Excerpt from The Life of Ali Pacha, of Janina, Vizier of Epirus, Surnamed Aslan, or the Lion: From Various Documents
The great European celebrity acquired by the Vizier Ali, pacha of Janina, justly entitles that tyi'ant of classic ground to a biographical notice, in which the... fidelity of history shall neither be disfigured by exaggeration nor compromised by falsehood. Tyranny is in itself sufficiently odious Without attempting to render its features still more disgusting by distortion. The faithful de scription of the life of a tyrant may even afford instructive lessons to those nations, who, living under mild and beneficent laws, are notwithstand ing infected with a mania for political revolutions; at least, it will be useful to shew them that Wicked characters and ungovernable passions are the natural consequences of tyranny.
