Footnotes

1 William III.'s accession dates from Feb. 13. This date, however, does not synchronise with any such break in the Treasury records as was usually made upon the commencement of a new reign. The old, pre-Revolution Treasury administration remained in office until April 6, and its executive record, pp. 1-26 infra, is therefore here given as in some way introductory to the present volume.
The commencement of the new Revolution Treasury administration is marked by the first meeting of the new Treasury Lords on April 10 infra.
