The agent of the Greek Committee who was appointed to co-operate
with Lord Byron was the Honorable Leicester Stanhope, – and it would
be difficult to find a any man so more richly endowed with every
quality which could recommend him to the approval of the friends
of Greece. A straight-forward sincerity of purpose – a singular
love & constant advocacy of truth & publicity – a clear sightedness which
enabled him to weigh the merits & to use the influences of the
different parties in Greece – an unwearied activity of purpose body & mind
& of operation in his a word, every moral & intellectual quality which
became his situation, distinguished his career in Greece. His work
in Greece – notwithstanding its literary defects – will remain a
permanent monument to his sagacity, wisdom & virtue. While
mindful of the political interests, – & keenly alive to the military
defence of Greece he was busily engaged in every project which could
advance the civilization & the happiness of that country: – & as when Greece
should ever shall be rescued (if ever) from Egyptian bondage, and enter upon
her new career of civilization improvement, the seed which Colonel Stanhope scattered
will assuredly grow up. He caused schools to be established – hospitals
to be organized – printing presses to be set in motion – internal communications
to be provided for:- he gave an to every species of improvement and we have great satisfaction in associating
with his name the resolution of the Greek Committee which was
unanimously passed on Col. Stanhopes return
