Excerpt

I owe and now offer acknowledgement and thanks to many friends. I am indebted to Dr. A. G. Doughty of the Canadian Archives at Ottawa for many courtesies and to Mr. D. C. Harvey of Halifax, Archivist of Nova Scotia, for helpful suggestions. Mr. W. L. Grant, Principal of Upper Canada College, Toronto, and Professors Chester Martin and George W. Brown of the University of Toronto, have read and commented on the whole of the manuscript. Professor W. J. Alexander, of University College, has read a portion of the manuscript. My latest obligation is to Professor Ralph Flenley, of the University of Toronto, to Mr. H. H. Langton, former Librarian, and to Mr. W. S. Wallace, the present Librarian, for the laborious service of reading the whole of the book in proof. I have profited greatly by their aid.

While describing military operations within the frontiers of Canada, I have passed lightly over those in the English Colonies as beyond the purpose of the narrative. Hence there is only passing reference to the loyalist regiments serving there.

G. M. W.

TORONTO, October, 1934.
