He would express his gratitude to Dr Rendel Harris and to his friend the Rev. J. C. Nicol, m.a., Eccles, for information as to the Samaritan codices in the Rylands Library, Manchester. The kindness of the librarians of the Universities Of Glasgow and Edinbtirgh, and Of New College, Edinburgh, must not be forgotten.
