Excerpt

Acknowledgments are due and are hereby gratefully rendered to Pendle Hill, Wallingford, Pennsylvania, Quaker Graduate Centre, whose grant of a Research Fellowship suggested the work in the first place and afforded the peace and quiet in which to get on with it, in the second. To Francis R. Taylor of Philadelphia, for his generous loan of the manuscript of William Savery's journal. To Quintin Gurney of Norwich and to Miss A. Isabel Fry of Loughton, England, for making available the use of a number of hitherto unpublished letters, journals, and family pictures. To John Nickalls for the facilities of the Friends' Reference Library, London; to the authorities of the Library of the British Museum for similar courtesies; to the librarians of Haverford and Swarthmore Colleges for their coöperation in obtaining for me the loan of rare books; and to Edward Weeks of the Atlantic Monthly Press for many valuable suggestions.

Quotations whose origin is not otherwise given are from the unpublished manuscripts aforementioned.

More personal acknowledgments would be too numerous, but a single exception must be made of Miss Rosemary Gurney, great-granddaughter of Daniel Gurney, for her tales of family traditions, and for the conveyance, in her own person, of the Gurney quality.
