Excerpt from The Poetical Works of William Wordsworth, Vol. 6

IN issuing the Sixth Volume of this Edition I again acknowledge my indebtedness to Mrs Wordsworth and Mr Gordon Wordsworth, for access to the mss. Of the Poet's works, and the two Journals of the Tour on the Continent in 1820, written by Mrs and by Miss Words worth.

I have also to thank Mr Heard, Fettes College, Edin burgh, for his notes to Laodamia and Dion, and other poems; and Mr Herbert Rix for his minute and careful study of the Duddon Valley, in the light of the Sonnets relating to it. My obligations to many others will be apparent in the notes.
