"It seems to me that our correspondence ought to be of the greatest value to an historian of our times. My letters have been a most faithful record of everything that came to my knowledge ... In short, it strikes me that the truth will emerge more clearly from this exchange of letters than from any memoirs that may be published." (Madame de Lieven to Metternich, 1826). Letters edited and with a biographical foreword by Peter Quennell.
