Excerpt

M Y debt of gratitude to many friends and guides working on eighteenth-century history will, I trust, be so clear in the following pages that it requires neither emphasis nor particularization here. Dr. F. L. Cross, in the catholicity of his interests, read my proofs to my great profit, and Dr. J. B. Owen did me the same service for part of them. The General Editor of this series, Sir George Clark, put his wisdom and experience most generously at my disposal. I am grateful also to those pupils, both in Christ Church and in my W.E.A. class. at Headington, who clarified my ideas by forcing me to defend them. To Miss Elizabeth A. Livingstone I am most deeply obliged for her tireless labours in typing my manuscript, in working on the index, in pursuing references for verification, and in keeping me to a time-table. I must also thank my wife and family for bearing with me while I have been living with this book.
