Excerpt

During the years in which I have been writing this book, I have contracted debts of gratitude in three countries. In Great Britain, I have to thank the Most Honourable the Marquess of Lansdowne for allowing me to use the Shelburne Papers in his possession; His Grace the Duke of Grafton for permission to use the papers of the Third Duke of Grafton, at present deposited in the West Suffolk County Record Office at Bury St. Edmunds; Earl Fitzwilliam and his Trustees of the Wentworth Woodhouse Settled Estates for permission to use material from the Wentworth Woodhouse Muniments deposited in the Central Library, Sheffield; Professor Thomas Copeland for permission to quote from letters of Edmund Burke which are soon to appear in volumes of the definitive edition of the Correspondence of Edmund Burke under his editorship; University College London for permission to use the Bentham Papers in their possession; the Trustees of the National Library of Scotland for the use of the Melville Papers in their custody; the Controller of H.M. Stationery Office for permission to use unpublished Crown Copyright material in the Public Record Office; the Bodleian Library, Oxford, for permission to use material from the North and Price Papers; and Dr. R. W. Greaves, the Right Honourable the Lord Tweedsmuir and Mr. C. I. Casey for their help and encouragement.

In the United States I must thank Dr. Howard Peckham, Librarian of the William L. Clements Library, Ann Arbor, Michigan, and his staff for their help in securing me access to, and permission to use the magnificent eighteenth-century collections in their care; the American Council of Learned Societies for a Pre- Doctoral Fellowship to enable me to gather the material for this book; and Dr. G. C. Boyce and members of the History Department of Northwestern University for their encouragement.

In my own country, I am grateful to the Canada Council and the University of British Columbia for money and time to enable me to write, and to my departmental colleagues, Dean F. H. Soward . . .
