Excerpt from The Herald and Genealogist, Vol. 4 The history of the Order of Baronets has been suspended, but will shortly be resumed. In the mean time numerous instances of Doubtful Baronetcies have been submitted to examination in nearly every Part. Nor have we hesitated to show how frequently the pages of genealogy are impaired by fictitious statements. If we can in some measure shame their fabricators, or if at the least we can teach our readers to discriminate between the true and the false, we shall congratulate ourselves on having rendered some service in the cause of historic truth; and we shall therefore pursue our purpose on public grounds, but with no wish to pass censure where it is not well deserved. During the past year the Lyon office of arms in Scotland has been regulated by act of parliament; and in the present volume will be found all the information regarding its constitution and practice that can be desired. We continue our Heraldic Chronicle, which forms a contemporary record of no little importance. Nor do we relinquish our collections for a Bibliotheca Heraldica, although the number of new works on Heraldry and Genealogy have so far preoccupied our attention during the present volume as to leave no room for those of earlier date.
