Excerpt

In the numerous references accompanying the body of the work, the sources from which the material for this monograph has been drawn, are clearly indicated. Moreover, so far as it has been deemed practicable, the references are not only very full but also specific, bearing directly upon the statement made or the point at issue. Both in consequence of the important bearing which the period prior to 1680 has upon that which followed it, and in order also to do away with many long explanatory notes in the succeeding chapters, the introductory chapter is somewhat longer and more complete than might perhaps have been expected. In considering the provincial period, the topical method of treatment has been adopted because, among other things, the subject under review can in that way be treated connectedly and as a unit and greater clearness can thus be obtained. Naturally in a work of this character many matters of interest and some also of importance have necessarily been omitted. Some of these, however, have been treated more or less fully by other writers, while some are of such a nature that they cannot be satisfactorily dealt with, if the discussion is confined to the work of a single province.

Though not intended originally for publication, the matter in the appendix, particularly the dates and references there given, will, it is hoped, prove to be both acceptable and useful.
