    Excerpt from The Aldermen of the City of London, Temp; Henry III. 1912, Vol. 2: With Notes on the Parliamentary Representation of the City, the Aldermen and the Livery Companies, the Aldermanic Veto, Aldermanic Baronets and Knights, Etc

    Rev. Claud Jenkins, Librarian at Lambeth Palace, Rev. W. P. Besley, Librarian of St. Paul's Cathedral, and to the Rev. Canon Pearce.

    In the Historical Introduction, which I reserved for this volume instead of its more naturally appropriate position, I have endeavoured to put together various notes and comments on points of interest, which the general subject of the work suggested. I am conscious that they may justly incur the criticism of being in some measure disjointed and 'scrappy,' and they are very far indeed from being exhaustive. But to summarise the history of the Aldermen of London in all its aspects would require a separate treatise. I am conscious of many defects in the execution of the work which I, perhaps, too rashly undertook: competent critics may well detect others, for parental eyes are not the quickest to discover the blemishes in the offspring. I am conscious, too, how little claim so strict a censor of the writings of others can put forward for a lenient judgment of his own defects. I can only plead in extenuation of any errors that I have overlooked that I have taken some pains to detect them, and have bestowed more care on the verification of my facts and dates than is apparent on the part of writers of greater pretensions and in works of more serious importance than mine can claim to be. Wherever I have discovered errors too late for correction in the original text I have supplied emendations at the pages indicated above. My thanks are due to Mr. Kemp (of the firm of Messrs. Eden Fisher Cc., who has superintended the printing of these volumes, for his valuable co-operation in the work of correction and for the patience and careful consideration with which he has dealt with, I fear, some very troublesome and irritating 'copy.'
