The editors wish to repeat their thanks to all those listed in the Acknowledgments in the opening pages of volumes 1 and 5 and also to thank James R. G. Wright, formerly of Edinburgh University, now of St. Catharine's College, Cambridge; L. Ardern, Librarian, Hornel Collection, Broughton House, Kirkcudbright; Col. James Edgar, Curator, Carlyle's House, Chelsea; E. J. Balley; and Joe Rees and Jane Vogel, Duke University Library. They regret that volumes 8 and 9 carry on their title pages for the last time the name of Professor John Clubbe, whose work on the edition ended when he left Duke to go to the University of Kentucky in the autumn of 1976, but who had worked with translations and draft notes for some later letters, particularly those for 1838–39 and early 1844, before he left.
