The circumstances which have operated to retard the appear-
ance of the following pages are such as hardly to admit, in this
place, of any statement except that, if my pleasure had been
consulted, the publication of this Index would have followed
immediately that of the volumes to which it relates.

That it is free from mistakes is very much more than I ven-
ture to suppose. Beyond question, if I had enjoyed access to
books and manuscripts additional to those in my own limited
collection, I might often have done otherwise than simply repeat
that which I strongly suspected, and still so suspect, of being
erroneous.

To the fourteen pages with which the Index concludes, the
attention of the inspector is particularly invited. With much
else that concerns him, he will there find materials for occasional
emendation of the admirable Sanskrit lexicon for which we
are indebted to the unrivalled research of the learned Messrs.
