Patrick Roberts of London similarly helped me with a number of French documents, and the late Dr, Dik ter Haar of Magdalen College, Oxford, welcomed me into his home and patiently guided me through many pages of Flemish. Any mistakes are mine; to all of them, my thanks. In London and Oxford, the staffs of the British Library, the London Library, and the Bodleian Library were unfailingly helpful.
