Excerpt from Buckinghamshire The author is indebted to Messrs Richard Bentley of Slough and E. Mawley of Berkhampstead for the meteorological statistics in Chapter 8, and to Mr Henry J. Turner for the entomological paragraphs in Chapter 7. He must also express his gratitude to Lady Verney for many valuable suggestions and criticisms, which add considerably to whatever value the book may have. To Messrs A. H. Cocks, E. Hollis, W. H. Marsh, W. Niven, C. G. Watkins and others he is also indebted for information on various matters. He must however take upon himself the responsibility for those mistakes which readers with more intimate local kwledge will probably detect, and of which he trusts they will inform him.
