Excerpt

His Majesty the King has graciously given permission for the publication of George III's letters to Lord Bute, and I have also been privileged to make use of the Royal Archives at Windsor.

I have to express my grateful thanks to the Marquess of Bute, both for permitting me to publish these letters, of which he is the owner, and for granting me access to the papers of the third Earl of Bute.

I am also indebted to the late Duke of Devonshire, the Duke of Bedford, the Earl of Ilchester, and Lord Leconfield for permission to consult the papers at Chatsworth, Woburn, Holland House, and Petworth respectively, and to Herr R. Drögereit for supplying me with material from the Hanoverian Archives.

Finally, I should like to record my great obligations to Professor L. B. Namier for the generous and invaluable assistance which he has given me in connexion with this work.
