Excerpt

Having in my Economic and Social Histories of Virginia in the Seventeenth Century -- the one published in 1896, the other in 1907 -- described in detail two sides of Colonial life in that age, it only remained to issue an Institutional History of the same period in order to present a complete picture of all the conditions prevailing in Virginia previous to 1700. In the preparation of the present volumes, which close the study, I enjoyed the advantage of a personal examination of all the original documents bearing on the subject, preserved, not only in this country, but also in the great English depositories, such as the Public Record Office in London, Fulham and Lambeth Palaces and the like.
