Excerpt from Whitaker's Peerage, Baronetage, Knightage, and Companionage for the Year 1907: Containing an Extended List of the Royal Family; The Peerage With Titled Issue; Dowager Ladies; Baronets, Knights and Companions Much as this work has been indebted to the larger Peerages of Burke and Debrett, we are unremitting in our efiorts to procure information on our own account, and during the past autumn we have forwarded between two and three thousand proofs to Peers, Baronets, Widows, and many others. From a large number of these we have received the most valuable and courteous information, through which the accuracy of the present issue is greatly im proved, and for which We return our most cordial thanks but, on the other hand, there are those-who never return a proof, accompanied though it is with a stamped and directed envelope; and there are others again who apparently return it only because of that envelope and without either marking a stroke or appending the word correct. One elderly Peer who falls under this category yet takes the pains to send us the fatherly admonition, vould it not save your time and postage if you looked at the published Roll of the House -oi Lords? Of course it would be idle 'to suppose that either this volume or this Preface would ever meet his eye, or we might have informed him at least as to the nature of the document he cites: it is issued every February at the price of two-pence, and we not only purchase it, but study it and in substance reprint it every year. We hold, however, the opinion that, cheap as our own volume is, its readers will expect from it something more than what is thus to the hadfo'r an expenditure of two-pence.
