Excerpt from The York Mercers and Merchant Adventurers, 1356-1917

My best thanks are due to Mr. Hamilton Thompson, who not only revised my proofs, but generously allowed me to draw on his unrivalled knowledge of ecclesiastical history. It is impossible for me to express adequately the gratitude I feel for the ceaseless care with which he supervised the passage of this volume through the press. To Canon Fowler I owe thanks for many interesting suggestions with regard to emen dations of the text.

It is obviously impossible for a writer to deal successfully in a limited introduction with a period of more than five hundred years, and with matter inclusive of all branches of history, constitutional, industrial, economic, religious, and social. I have not attempted the impossible. In my introduction, how ever, I have tried to give such an analysis that I hope my readers will turn to the text, and study for themselves the documents on which my brief account is based.

To the governor of the Merchant Adventurers, Mr. H. Ernest Leetham, my most cordial thanks are due, for allowing me unrestricted access to all the documents under his charge, and for constant interest in my work.
