Excerpt

I am indebted for helpful criticism to Mr. H. H. Langton, sometime Librarian of the University of Toronto, and to Dr. W. J. Alexander, Professor Emeritus of English Literature in University College, each of whom has read a portion of the manuscript. Mr. J. B. Tyrrell, sometime President of the Champlain Society and Editor of several of its volumes, has, I hope, saved me from some mistakes in respect of mining in Canada. My greatest debt is to Mr. W. Stewart Wallace, Librarian of the University of Toronto, who has read the whole of the manuscript. Miss Julia Jarvis of the Library has both read the proofs and made the Index. Mr. John Pearson has kindly furnished me with the photograph of the beautiful Peace Tower at Ottawa, of which he is the architect. My wife has given valued assistance in reading the proofs. No one but myself is responsible for errors, which, no doubt, critics will discover.

Quite obviously, the book is written for the general reader. Much of it is, however, based on special researches in respect of which no references to authorities are made.
