PREFATORY NOTE BY THE EDITOR.

by Mr. PAYNE during his tour in the autumn

of 1874, and reduced to its present shape in the spring of 1875. Various causes hindered its publication until, after my father's return from his summer journey, the state of his own health and the shock of a painful bereavement made it impossible for him to give any further attention to the subject. The manuscript accordingly remained untouched up to the close of the Author's life and labours in April 1876, and was thus never fully prepared for the press, or finally corrected.

Notwithstanding this drawback, and although the information conveyed is not perfectly recent, these brief notes cannot, it is thought, fail to be of value and interest, as recording the direct impressions, and embodying the mature judgment of a highly qualified observer in matters of education.

One explanation only it seems desirable to make.
