PREFACE TO Vol. V.

[ocr errors]

INCE the publication of the Preface to the third Volume of

this work very little has transpired which seems to call for any prefatory explanations.

explanations. During the compilation of the present volume, however, the Government of India were enabled to procure the services of Dr. W. R. Clark, of the Indian Medical Service, as a third collaborateur. The articles written by Dr. Clark will be found distributed through the present as also in the subsequent volumes, and the same rule as pursued in the case of Mr. Duthie and Dr. Murray will be observed to have been followed with Dr. Clark, namely, to give the contributor's name in the top right hand corner of each page. The Editor thinks it would be quite superfluous in him to attempt to eulogise the high merits of the gentlemen who have been associated with him. Their labours will appeal more forcibly to the reader than would any words of commendation. It need only be added, therefore, that the continued courteous and considerate toleration of his collaborateurs, in all matters of detail, has reduced the Editor's supervision to one of mutual consultation.
