IN presenting the Thirteenth Volume of the Journal to the Members of the Society, the Council venture to hope that the quality of the Articles will compare favourably with the papers which have appeared in the past.
The Dodsworth Notes on Osgoldcross, now completed, will be found most useful to all who are interested in that Wapentake; the notes with which Mr. Holmes has enriched the paper are valuable, and deserve the cordial thanks of the Society.
The publication of Mr. Skaife's new translation of that portion of Domesday Book relating to Yorkshire has been begun and will be welcomed by all the members. The text will be supplemented by sundry valuable tables and indices of persons, places, churches, mills, &c., which will add greatly to the utility of the book.
Mr. Brown's interesting paper on the Bruce Cenotaph has excited much interest, as has also the elucidation of
the Wragby windows by the Rev. E. H. Sankey and Dr. Schüddekopf, a work requiring great care and learning.
The Council have to say, in conclusion, that the authors of the various papers are alone responsible for the opinions and statements therein.
