Before concluding this report and taking leave of these MSS. till the Report of next year, I may perhaps be allowed to make a few brief observations on their character, so far as I have as yet examined them. It may be observed generally that the vols. 1-42 contain a very complete set of State Papers relating to foreign politics from 1754 to 1769, and that the large collection of documents relating to trade and commerce in this division and in Division IV. A.B., show the importance attached to these subjects by the Earl of Shelburne, a fact otherwise witnessed to by the evidence of contemporary writers. Vols. 9, 10, 11, contain a complete account of the secret negociations which preceded the peace of 1763. The statements of Mr. Adolphus, alluded to at p. 131, are thereby confirmed. Vol. 38 is interesting for many reasons, but more especially for the correspondence between Guerchy and Choiseul. Vols. 29, 30, 31, 40 contain very full information as to the politics of the Northern Courts of Europe and Lord Chatham's schemes for a Great Northern alliance. Vol. 37 is a full account of the operations against Belleisle, and may be of interest to military writers.
The continuation of this report will, as stated above, appear in the next Report of the Historical MSS. Commissioners. I hope in any case to bring it down as far as the end of Division II. and of the Correspondence. These two heads contain the most important portions of the MSS. now under review, since they relate to the war and the peace with America. Mr. Bancroft, as stated by him in the preface to his History of the United States, has been given free access to this collection; but his work, which is now in process of completion, has not as yet reached so far as 1783. Sir Cornewall Lewis also, when writing his “Ad“ministrations of England in the 18th Century,” made use of some of these papers, as mentioned in the notes to that work; while the most important portions of Mr. Oswald's letters have been printed by Mr. Sparks in the notes to Franklin's Correspondence. As, however, these MSS. are very numerous, I am not altogether without hope of finding some fresh information even on those topics which are the subject of the above-mentioned books.
quite impossible for the history of the Reformation, and the changes consequent upon the accession of the Stuarts, or for the great religious and political questions of those times, or the conduct of those who were engaged in them, to be fully understood, without the assistance of these papers. A tolerable fair guess may be made how minute, varied, and interesting that information is from the necessarily jejune list of names and dates here subjoined.
The collection consists at present of papers bound in 310 stout volumes, and of others not yet bound, which it is calculated would fill 20 volumes more, allowing for 150 to 200 documents to each volume. They are not yet arranged throughout in chronological order. A catalogue of one portion of them, made in 1834 by Mr. Stewart, the bookseller, was copied and deposited in the National Record Office for the Record Commission. It was not suspected until I visited Hatfield that this catalogue was incomplete; and it was generally supposed that Mr. Stewart had furnished the Record Commissioners with a complete list of the Hatfield Papers. On a subsequent search fresh letters and papers, now bound in 58 large volumes, were discovered, during the life of the late Marquis, many of them of the greatest interest and value; and scarcely less important than those in Mr. Stewart's catalogue. In the year 1868 the present Marquis instituted a further search, which resulted in adding to his collection a number of letters relating to Queen Elizabeth's history before her accession-to the intrigues connected with Mary of Scotland-and to the Gunpowder Plot. Among them also was found one of the casket letters of Mary Queen of Scots, of which the Hatfield collection now possesses two. This last discovery must be considered very important, for though this letter is evidently part of the series already known, and is numbered by Lord Burleigh in his peculiar way, the handwriting of it differs from the rest, and the French, in which it is written, has undergone numerous corrections. All these papers lately brought to light had, through the great and unfailing courtesy of the present Lord Salisbury, been examined by me with some attention, even before I was employed by the Historical Commission to report upon them. I had also examined with some minuteness the entire collection, which Lord Salisbury generously threw open to my inspection without the least reserve;-a kindness for which I cannot sufficiently express my acknowledgments.
In attempting to prepare this report numerous difficulties presented themselves. The collection is so large and the papers so important that I was at a great loss how to begin and where to end. No mere seleotion of the more interesting documents, and no general description, where all was so minute and interesting, seemed to me adequate to meet the requirements of the case, or likely to satisfy the justifiable curiosity of those, to whom this collection of MSS. is naturally a subject of very great interest. Dividing, therefore, the whole into two parts, i.e. the reigns of Elizabeth and James I., I had to determine which of the two I should first grapple with ; and though I have inverted the chronological order in so doing, I have given the preference to that of James I.; because as the late accessions to this part of the collection were more numerous (as it seemed to me) and more important, so they were also less known; and chiefly because the works of Baynes and Murdin, taken exclusively from the earlier portion, seemed to me in in some measure sufficient to enable all readers to form a judgment of the rest.
In preparing the following list, which contains all the correspondence now existing in Hatfield House relative to the important reign of James I., my progress was necessarily impeded by the want of chronological order in a collection of papers, which had by successive discoveries reached its present state. Besides, in examining that portion of it of which a report had been furnished many years ago, I found numerous omissions I had not suspected. I was, therefore,compelled to proceed de novo; to recollate all that had been previously done, and arrange the whole series in one uniform chronological order ; not indeed altering the place or position of the papers in the volumes where they now stand, but leaving them as before. The present list may be considered as presenting an exact index of all the papers relating to the reign of James I. And they can now easily be referred to without the necessity of re-arrangement. In this work I have been greatly assisted by Mr. Gunton, his Lordship's secretary and librarian, who is now engaged in preparing a complete catalogue of the whole collection, upon the same plan as that adopted in the Calendars of State Papers, published under the superinten
THE MANUSCRIPTS OF THE Most HONOURABLE THE
MARQUIS OP SALISBURY, AT HATFIELD HOUSE.
THE CECIL MSS. The collection of MSS. in the possession of the Marquis of Salisbury at Hatfield House is, perhaps, the largest, certainly the most valuable, of any pri vate collection in this kingdom. It consists partly of ancient vellum MSS. of early date, partly of correspondence commencing with the reign of Henry VIII. and ending with that of Charles II. But the great bulk of the collection refers to the reigns of Elizabeth and James I. The royal letters alone, during the lives of these two sovereigns, are so numerous and so important as to exceed by far any other similar series : and during these periods there is scarcely a personage of any eminence in the Church or in the State who has not contributed to these treasures. In this respect the Cecil Papers rise to the rank of national im portance, and the loss of them would be an irreparable injury to English history and biography, during the most brilliant and stirring period of our annals. How much they have already contributed to the elucidation of great events in the times of the last of the Tudors and the first of the Stuart princes is known to all who have studied the history of this country with any degree of care. The valuable collections of Haynes and Mardin, which still remain as the most important contributions we possess towards the original materials for the reigns of Edward VI., Mary, and Elizabeth, were taken exclusively from the Salisbury Papers. How much Lodge, how much Bircb in his Letters and Works of Lord Bacon, how much in later times the editors of the Camden Society, and the authors of the lives of Raleigh and other Elizabethan worthies, have been indebted for their most valuable information to the same sources, may be seen by reference to their pages. In fact, it would be
