Excerpt

In preparing this study it was my good fortune to have worked with Miss L. S. Sutherland, the Principal, Lady Margaret Hall; to her criticism and encouragement I owe the greatest thanks. Professor Max Beloff and Mr. Steven Watson have offered extremely useful points of information and suggestions on general organization, and I am grateful to Sir Lewis Namier and to Mr. Jack Brooke of the History of Parliament Trust for their help and for permission to use their typescripts and microfilm copies of manuscripts I could never otherwise have read. Professor Thomas Copeland, editor-in-chief of the Burke Correspondence, has given me many hours of his time, particularly in answering my repeated questions about references in the Fitzwilliam manuscripts at Sheffield. I am also grateful to Professor G. H. Guttridge of the University of California for his advice and for his permission to use a letter of Richmond's now in his private possession. To Mr. John Woods and Miss Patricia Whitehead I owe thanks for respectively calling my attention to material concerning Richmond in the manuscripts of Granville Sharp and the Earl of Bathurst. The Earl of Bathurst and the Duke of Richmond have kindly allowed me to inspect manuscripts in their homes. The Keeper of the Brotherton Manuscripts has allowed me to print letters from that collection, and the Duke of Portland, the Marquis Lansdowne, the Marquis of Camden, the Earl Fitzwilliam, the Earl of Albemarle, and the Earl of Stanhope have kindly allowed me to print letters from their private collections. Needless to add, no study of this kind could have been prepared without the countless favours of people like the librarian who spent hours of time tracing references, arranging for use of a microfilm reader, or obtaining a typist to copy library manuscripts, or like the county record officer who collected out-of-the-way manuscripts in his own car or made special arrangements for my own transportation to the Record Office.
