Excerpt from Philanthropy and the State: Or Social Politics

My husnand's MS. from which the present volume has been edited was, at the time of his sudden death, not only unrevised but in some sections and in several details incomplete. It was at once obvious that the preparation of it for publication would call for a knowledge of economics and sociology, and experience in investigation such as I did not myself possess. I was enabled to produce the work by the generous offer of Miss B.L. Hutchins to undertake the editing of it. Miss Hutchins had become a friend of ours during the last two years of my husbands life, and he had often discussed with her the subjects in which both were interested. I entrusted the work to her, knowing that it would be sympathetically handled, and my own share in the editing has been confined to occasional elucidation of the Ms. and purely verbal alterations. The principles which have been followed by the editors are explained by Miss Hutchins in the preface which follows, and it only remains for me to express (though it is impossible for me to do so adequately) my gratitude to her both for the very considerable time and labour which she devoted to this work, and also for her wish that my name should appear as co-editor, although, as I have explained, my share in the editorial work has been so much less than hers. My thanks are due to Dr. G.Buchanan Gray for his great kindness in giving us advice on several difficult points and also for reading the final revision of the proofs. Of others whose help I gratefully recall, I would especially mention Dr. McCleary and Dr. Lionel Tayler, who have each been good enough to read certain portions in proof and make suggestions for notes, amendments, etc., and the Rev. W.Reason who has read the whole of the proofs.
