In presenting this, the second volume of THE MARYLAND CALENDAR OF WILLS, an introduction seems superfluous as the scheme and purposes of the work were fully set forth in the first volume. It does seem well, however, to thank the subscribers for their patient waiting. The delay in the publication of Vol. II is due in part to the fact that Vol. I had to be reprinted because all of the undelivered copies of the book were destroyed in the Baltimore fire. Also, I would like to express my sincere thanks to Hon. E. Stanley Toadvin, the Commissioner of the Land Office at Annapolis, Mr. James Walter Thomas of Cumberland, and the Hon. John Gill, Jr., of Baltimore, and other friends of the work through whose efforts a continuation of this publication was made possible by means of a bill providing for a State subscription to the work which was passed by the last General Assembly of Maryland.

Volume III is already in press and is expected to be ready for distribution within the next year.

Boston, Mass., December 19, 1905.
