I should like first to acknowledge the debt I owe to Lord Fitzwilliam who allowed me access to the archives at Wentworth Woodhouse. His courtesy has enabled me to draw on many unpublished letters. When the reference " Wentworth Woodhouse MSS." is given, the source will be a hitherto unpublished document.
I am also deeply indebted to the Duke of Rutland who allowed me to inspect his magnificent Muniment Room at Belvoir Castle, from which I derived some excellent matter-notably some previously unpublished remarks of Strafford on the scaffold.
Lord and Lady Allendale have also shown me the greatest courtesy and assistance, and I am most grateful to Mr. E. E. Hawkes for his constant assistance to me during some difficult researches.I am also grateful to Mr. Jervoise of Herriard, Rants, and Lord Saye and Sele of Broughton Castle, for allowing me to visit their houses and inspect their archives.
