Excerpt from Gladstone the Man; A Non-Political Biography

While other pens have been busy recording and criticising the political acts of Mr. Gladstone, mine will be the more grateful task of portraying him, not as the politician, not as the statesman who guided the helm of the ship of State during four eventful Premierships, but as the man whose personal character is esteemed by political friend and foe alike.

One of William Ewart Gladstone's friends once described him as "ever from youth up, the beloved and admired of many personal intimates. Always the foremost man, warm-hearted, earnest, hard-working, and religious, he had a following even in his teens." Of his earliest years, there is not much recorded which cannot be summarised briefly.
