It will not escape the careful inspector of this remarkable account that it contains in its several clauses divers inaccuracies, resembling the error of sixpence in the final computation. Nor will it escape due consideration that whilst the price of Westhall was 120l., the costs of conveyance amounting to 13l. 15s. 9d., i.e., exceeded one-ninth of the value of the property. But even more noteworthy than the entries touching the charges attending the transference of this single tenement from a Wiltshire squire to the Corporation of Southampton, are the memoranda relating to moneys spent by the town in buying the favour of the Sheriff, and procuring a friendly jury in the cause between the Crown on the one hand and the Corporation on the other, in respect to a felon's goods and chattels.

At the close of this account of an unusually interesting collection of municipal muniments, whilst expressing my sense of obligation to the members of the Town Council and other inhabitants of Southampton, for services that lightened my official work, and for civilities that rendered my sojourn in Hampshire a period of enjoyment, I may add for the reader's satisfaction, that, since I inspected the manuscripts, measures have been taken to put the more remarkable of the charters, letters patent, and historic indentures under the view of all visitors of the Municipal Buildings, and to render the whole body of writings accessible to students on reasonable terms and conditions.
