This edition was prepared in part with the assistance of a Faculty Research Fund Grant from the Faculty of Arts, Australian National University; I am also grateful for support provided by the English Department and the Australian Scholarly Editions Centre, Australian Defence Force Academy. Of the many people who have helped in the preparation of the edition I wish to thank, in particular, Sue Fraser, whose research assistance has been a vital contribution; Leonie Rutherford, Janet Lawrence, Sarah Lloyd, Chris MacDonald and Clare Pritchard for research at libraries in London and Australia; Dallas de Brabander, Janette Lee, Olga Howell, Joanne Pollard and Alexandra Rombouts for computer entry of text; Philippa Wicks and Nicole Lowrey for help with collating; Margaret McNally for formatting the text and preparing camera-ready copy, and Paul Ballard for cartography. I am greatly indebted to the Colonial Texts Series General Editorial Committee, and especially to Paul Eggert, for encouragement, guidance and the consideration of successive drafts.
