In preparing a new and revised edition of Professor Leacock’s Baldwin, LaFontaine and Hincks, I have endeavoured as far as possible to preserve the spirit and form of the original work. The most important changes are: First, at the request of the General Editors, I have extended the account of William Lyon Mackenzie for reasons pointed out in the General Preface to the Series; secondly, the survey of the earlier part of Bagot’s régime has been completely changed in order to present his constitutional experiment from a detailed study of his correspondence, which unfortunately is not yet known in extenso to students and readers of history. I wish to thank Professor Leacock for his courteous permission to deal as I wished with his work and for his kindness during the process of revision. I am indebted to Principal Grant for more help than I can adequately acknowledge... [Suggest a different description.]
