    Excerpt from Life of John Wilkes The materials for a biography of John Wilkes are as adequate as those concerning any other politician of the eighteenth century. The Wilkes MSS. in the British Museum occupy two dozen volumes or more - i.e. Add. MSS. 30865-88 - and contain many thousand letters written by the demagogue and his numerous correspondents. Some of these have been printed in Almon's Life of Wilkes and more in The Letters, from the Year 1774 to the Year 1796, of John Wilkes, Esq., addressed to his Daughter, but the majority are still unpublished. The Diary and the Address Books in particular are invaluable for biographical purposes. In addition to these documents there are many other papers in the Manuscript Room of the British Museum relating to Wilkes. Add. MSS. 22131-2 contain many hundred pages about his trial There are the innumerable references cited by Mr. J. M. Rigg in his excellent monograph in the Dictionary of National Biography. The Hardwicke and the Newcastle MSS. are full of letters dealing with the case of Wilkes. In the Guildhall Library there is a large dossier, bound in three volumes, including many invaluable records of the prosecution of the agitator, which, as far as I am aware, have never been examined previously. The MSS. sold at Sotheby's on August 1, 1913, now in the possession of the author, throw much light upon the boyhood of Wilkes.
