Excerpt

The present volume consists of two distinct parts, united by a community of relation to the history and fate of Mary Queen of Scots, but derived from different sources, and seen through the press by different editors.

The first part of the volume consists of papers relating to the expenses of Queen Mary's maintenance in England, and to her funeral. These have been edited by Allan J. Crosby, esq.
