Excerpt from The Royalist Composition Papers, Vol. 5: Being the Proceedings of the Committee for Compounding, A. D. 1643-1660, So Far as They Relate to the County of Lancaster, Extracted From the Records Preserved in the Public Record Office, London

It is necessary to say a few words about the long delay in the issue of the present part of these Composition Papers. The earlier parts were issued in 1891, 1892, 1896, and 1898. Then came a pause, but the first half of the present volume was actually in type in 1906. Then the death of Canon Stanning put a stop to it for the time. In 1910 an attempt was made to continue the volume, but Mr. Pink had to relinquish the task, and Col. Parker, who next undertook the editorship, found himself unable to make any progress, owing to other duties incumbent upon him. Meantime the printers were charging for the long-standing type, and on Mr. Gregson offering to take up the work, the proofs and manuscript were handed to him, and the second half of this volume was then sent to the printers. Owing to the breakdown of his health for a time, Mr. Gregson was not able to act any further, and the present editor therefore has had to see the work of his predecessors through the press as speedily as possible. The volume being but a small one, it has been considered opportune to insert an Appendix, containing references to the Calendar of the Committee's proceedings compiled by Mrs. M. A. Everett Green and issued from the Public Record Office in five large volumes and supplying the cases omitted, usually very small ones. By the use of the Calendar and its excellent index various errors and displacements have been corrected. There are, no doubt, some other corrections to be made, and the editor would be glad to have notice of them in time for insertion in the sixth and concluding part (S-Z).
