Excerpt from A Life of Sir Woodbine Parish, K. C. H., F. R. S.; 1796 1882: Sometime Secretary to Lord Castlereagh, Charge D'affaires and Minister Plenipotentiary to the Provinces of the River Plate, Being the First Agent Sent by Great Britain to Recognize the Independence of the Argentine Republic For some years past I had hoped to write a short account of my grandfather's life for the benefit of the other grandchildren who had little or no recollection of Sir Woodbine Parish. Thanks to the kindness of my uncle, Mr. Charles Woodbyne Parish, who has put Sir Woodbine's journals and other family papers and pictures at my disposal, the memoir has considerably exceeded my original intention; I wish to record my gratitude to him for his help and encouragement, with out which the book could not have been written. My thanks are also due to Sir Edward Grey, Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, for giving me access to certain papers at the Foreign Office, formerly belonging to Sir Woodbine Parish; and for permission to make use of the Foreign Office Correspondence - now in the Public Record Office - relating to Argentina and Naples.
