"The politics of eighteenth-century Britain were deeply affected by the ability of Governments to raise loans through the monied interest in the City of London, and later by the territorial responsibilities of the East India Company. City and Company politics rantheir own course, often in reaction to Westminster. Dame Lucy Sutherland w as a profound student of all three, combining in rare degree the skills of the economic historian and the technique evolved by Sir Lewis Namier for the analysis of politics. Much of her work appeared in articles, of which 'Politics and Finance in the Eighteenth Century' is a comprehensive collection, omitting only pieces primarily devoted to the publication of documents. They constitute an unusually coherent series, remarkable for maturity of judgement and for originality in showing the mutual influence of business and politics. Dame Lucy examines particulra figures and their financial and political fortunes, and the internal politics of India House and their implications for Parliament. She sheds new light on the celebrated Nandakuma trialand on controversial features of the career of Warren Hastings and, by her pioneer work on city politics and city radicalism, puts the careers of the elder Pitt and Edmund Burke in a new perspective. Finally this collectin i ncludes some of the fruits of Dame Lucy's last years when she was editing the eighteenth-century volume of the 'History of the University of Oxford'."- from the dustjacket.

The outer entrance of the harbor (3/4 mile wide) is between King Head and Merigomish Point, the latter being the west extreme of Merigomish Island. The bar is formed by rocky shoals running out from these points of entrance 3/4 mile to the northward. The channel over the bar, and leading in from it between the shoals, is more than 200 yards wide ; but the shoals are so steep that the lead affords little guidance, and there are noleading marks. The course running in is at first to the southward, and the n by a sharp turn to the eastward close past Savage Point (the sandy spit at the SW. extreme of Merigomish Island) into the harbor. This inner entrance of the harbor, between Savage Point and the east end of Olding Island, isabout 1/4 mile wide, but the navigable breadth is reduced to 100 yards by the shoal off Olding Island, and the tides frequently run there at the rateof 5 miles an hour. This harbor is seldom visited by anything larger than a coasting schooner. The pilots are therefore incompetent from want of practice and the channel is no longer buoyed as it used to be formerly. The harbor is of great extent, running in 5 or 6 miles to the eastward, within Merigomish Island and the sandbar which joins it to the mainland, and also 4 miles to the westward, up a bay full of islands, coves and precipitous headlands. Several small streams enter the harbor, of which French River, opposite the east end of Olding Island, is the principal. It is approached by a very narrow channel, through flats of mud and weeds, and can be ascended by boats to the bridge, about a mile. Merigomish Island, 3 1/4 miles long and 1 1/3 miles broad, is of clay and sandstone, belonging to the coal formation, rising to the height of l50 feet above the sea. Thin seams of coal may be seen at Coal Point, where the cliffs, which form the northern shore of the island, are 35 feet high. Its southern shore is broken into coves, cliffyislets, and peninsulated points similarly to the western part of the harbo r A sandbar 2 1/2 miles long unites the island to the mainland to the eastward, excepting in unusually high tides, when the water washes over one partof it into the harbor. Tides. -It is high water, full and change, at Betty Point in Merigomish Harbor at l0h. 6m.; springs rise 5 1/4 feet, neaps 3 1 /4 feet, but the diurnal inequality is strongly marked here, as at Pictou, causing a considerable difference in the times and the heights of the two tides on the same day. Faint dampstain to lower corner of much of the book, not affecting text, light wear to covers, but with bright gilt. 400.00

1780, 
WALTER, William, Rev. A Sermon, Preached before the Lodge, No. 169, AncientYork Masons, and a large Number of visiting Brethren, in St. Paul's Church , New-York on Saturday, June 24, 1780. Being The Festival of St. John Baptist. By the Reverend William Walter, A.M. New-York: "Printed by Alexander Robertson", MDCCLXXX. [1780]. Rev. Walter (1737- 1800) was the first Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of New York., a loyalist and a chaplain in the royal establishment. Not in Sabin. "The organization of the Grand Lodge was completed Dec.5, 1782. Nine - mostly army - lodges were present, and assisted.The Rev. William Walter was chosen first Grand Master and served until Sep t. 19, 1783, when, upon evacuation by the British, he resigned and left thecountry with the troops." - The New York Times, March 8, 1896. "Reverend W illiam Walter, D.D., born October 7, 1737, was the eldest son of the Reverend Nathaniel Walter, pastor of the Second Church in Roxbury, Mass., who died in 1776 He was graduated at Harvard College in 1756. One of his sisters was married to Sir Robert Hasilrigge, Bart., and another to the Reverend Mather Byles, D.D., Junior. In 1764, in company with Abraham Jarvis, afterwardbishop of Connecticut, and others, he went to England for ordination, and on his return, July 22, 1764, was installed rector of Trinity Church, Boston. September 30, 1766, he married Lydia, daughter of the Honorable BenjaminLynde, Junior, of Salem, who bore him seven children. His grandson Lynde M inshall Walter was the founder and first editor of the Boston Evening Transcript. In March, 1776, Dr. Walter resigned his rectorship and left with theBritish troops for Halifax. His youngest daughter, Harriet Tynge, was born in Shelburne, May 16, 1776. Although his family remained in Nova Scotia, h e himself returned with General Howe and the fleet to New York, where he was on the 31st of October, 1776. Later, in August, 1783, he went back to Nova Scotia and was settled at Shelburne. He perhaps came to Shelburne with the New York people who settled there in 1783. In 1791, he returned to Boston, where he purchased a house in Charter Street, built by Sir William Phipps, and destroyed in 1837. May 28, 1792, he became rector of Christ Church, Boston, which office he held until December 5, 1800. He was "a remarkably handsome man, tall and well-proportioned. When in the street he always wore along blue cloth cloak over his cassock and gown; a full-bottomed wig, dres sed and powdered; a three-cornered hat; knee breeches of fine black cloth, with black silk hose; and square-quartered shoes, with silver buckles. His countenance was always serene; his temper always cheerful."- Arthur Wentworth Eaton, The Church of England in Nova Scotia and the Tory Clergy of the Revolution.pp.182-4. See also chap.8. See also William Buell Sprague's Annals of the American Episcopal Pulpit, Volume 5. "The Rev. Dr. Walter, who waschaplain of De Lancey's 3d Battalion, was compelled to leave for Nova Scot ia ". - Ossian Lang's History of Freemasonry in New York.
