It only remains for me to express my thanks to the several Governors and Chaplains of the gaols visited, for the uniform kindness with which they offered every facility for inspecting the establishments under their charge. To William Merry, Esq. of Berkshire, to Joseph Adshead, Esq. of Manchester, and to the authorities at the Home Office, I am more especially indebted. To Colonel Cathcart, DeputyLieutenant of the Tower, and to George L. Chesterton, Esq. I owe a debt of gratitude for which an acknowledgment is but a poor return. And lastbut not least,—let me express my deep obligations to T. Duffus Hardy, Esq. Keeper of the Tower Records, for his assistance in reading and deciphering such of the old papers of his office as contained any new and curious matter there available for my purposes.
