Excerpt from The Poetical Works of Gray and Collins
I avail myself of this opportunity to express my gratitude to the Master and Fellows of Pembroke College, Cambridge, for most kindly placing their valuable collee tion of Gray Manuscripts at my disposal at the University Lib... rary, and for allowing me to reproduce part of their copy of the Elegy; to Mr. C. H. Blakiston, Keeper of the Memorial Buildings at Eton College, for access to the autograph mss. Of the Elegy and the Eton Ode preserved there; to Dr. Walker of Peterhouse and to Mr. H. W. V. Temperley, who occupies the set of rooms once tenanted by Gray at Peterhouse, for information concerning Gray's departure from the College. Lastly, my Special thanks are due to Mr. Edmund Gosse, who has not only per mitted me to use freely his valuable edition of Gray's works, but also given me much personal assistance.
