" Bis dat qui cito dat."

The Colonies form such an important portion of our Empire that a
^history of the leading families, and their connection with the mother

country, cannot fail to be of interest.
^*< The preparation of this work has already been the means of bringing
\ together kinsfolk from both sides of the globe, and I trust that the result
of my labours may still further tend to promote that family love and
unity which has always been the characteristic trait of our race.
5' I have received, from every one of my correspondents, unvarying
4 politeness and attention — from many, most important assistance — and to
1 I now beg to return my best and sincerest acknowledgments.
Many imperfections will be apparent, I fear, to the critic of these
pages, but I may be permitted to say that the popularity of "Burke's
Landed Gentry " was not lessened by the fact that faults were numerous
in the first edition. The publication of this volume, by inviting public
criticism, is the only way to draw forth more detailed and correct informa-
tion on the subject, and I cordially ask all persons interested to put
themselves into direct communication with me, so that any points they
may raise could be dealt with in a subsequent edition. I need not say
that it will afford me much pleasure to reply to any questions affecting
the various memoirs.

THE EDITOIL




*#* All communications to be addressed to The Editor of " The Colonial
Gentry," at Hakrison and Sons', 59, Pall Mall (S.W.), London.
