NOTE

A

NUMBER of letters addressed to Jasper Mauduit, when agent in London for the Province of the Massachusetts-Bay, were sold at auction in London in 1916, and were purchased by Mr. Charles G. Washburn, a member of this Society. The series proved of high historical and personal interest, and Mr. Washburn not only presented the manuscripts to the Society but offered to pay the expense of publication. This volume contains all the papers in the Washburn collection, together with a few taken from the Archives of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, which seemed necessary to complete the relation. The position and activities of a colonial agent have not heretofore been so fully told, and in no other collection have the local and personal politics attending the election and service of such an agent been displayed.

WORTHINGTON CHAUNCEY FORD.

BOSTON, January, 1918.
