and a stock-dove in Ashton Park. The battle was long and fierce, and when the two

Biographical Section.

The author deems it necessary to remark that a revise was forwarded to
every distinguished Lancaster gentleman, or gentleman closely identified with
Lancaster, in order that absolute facts might alone be made use of In all but
two instances revises were returned promptly. In the two cases alluded to so
much inconvenience was occasioned that it was in/possible to delay going to press
any longer; therefore the author feels compelled to state that he must emphatically
disclaim all responsibility for errors which may appear in consequence of failure
to return revises within a day or two according to rule.

Corrigenda.

Hall's '• History of Lancaster " is alluded to in the preface, instead Hall's
•• History of the Castle."

On p. 20 read Messrs. W. Wailes, of Newcaslle-on-Tyne. It was SO
written at first, but a gentleman informed me it should be NewcBStle-under-Lyme.
I find he was wrong.

Lodge where there are no Christian names re Hubberstey.
