It is possible that materials, so fragmentary and gleaned from so many sources, might here and there have been arranged in an order more satisfactory to the critical reader. On the other hand, it is not improbable that something of the freshness of the original impression derived from the authorities might be lost in an effort to obtain a more perfect sequence. At the same time the opportunity of a reprint has been used to make a good many minor changes. An occasional looseness of expression has been amended; statements which seemed too strong or incautious have occasionally been toned down; and some slips as to fact, or the form of proper names, have been corrected. (Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
