In acknowledging the assistance received by the Council in preparing this second volume on the Grosvenor
Estate in Mayfair, the principal debt of gratitude must again be to the Trustees of the Grosvenor Estate, without
whose willingness to allow access to their records this study could not have been made. It is again a pleasure to
acknowledge the valuable assistance given to the Council's officers by numerous members of the staff of the
Grosvenor Office, particularly Mr. Guy Acloque, and of the Trustees' solicitors, Boodle, Hatfield and
