A Thesis presented to the Faculty of the Graduate School of Yale University in Candidacy for the Degree of Doctor of Phiqsophy,
PREFACE This study was carried on under the direction of Professor Albert S. Cook, to whom in a special degree are due thanks for encouragement and for training in method. To Professor E. P. Morris I am indebted for helpful suggestions. I desire also to acknowledge courtesies extended to me, during the preparation of the thesis, by the Libraries of Yale and Harvard Universities, and to express my thanks to Miss Anna M. Monrad, of the Yale University Library, for assistance in proof-reading.
A portion of the expense of printing this thesis has been borne by the Modern Language Club of Yale University from funds placed at its disposal by the generosity of Mr. George E. Dimock, of Elizabeth, New Jersey, a graduate of Yale in the Class of 1874.
