Excerpt from The Cinque Ports: A Historical and Descriptive Record

My Dear Robert,

Permit me to dedicate this book, or so much of it as is mine, to you. It is a practice not unusual for a dedicator to assure a dedicatee that he - perhaps more frequently she - is the fountain and origin of the work dedicated, the head and front of the offence. This practice I can to some extent, and with a good conscience, follow; for I hold it certain that but for your friendly and professional advice I should long since have ended, if not on the gallows, at least in a union workhouse, a not vastly promising career. In the latter of these predicaments the writing of a book about the Cinque Ports would have been difficult; in the former, impossible. Hence your vicarious responsibility.

With regard to this book: as you are aware, I have lived within the Liberties of one or other of the Five Ports ever since I can remember, and, ever since I can remember, the glamour of their name has been upon me. As a boy at school in one of the Corporate Members of the Port of Dover I always thought that the estate of a Baron of the Ports was the highest of ultimate human attainments; I had no wish, like my schoolmates, to be either a pirate, or a railway-guard, or even a baron of the realm.

As perhaps you remember, at the very outset of writing I confided to you my ideas of what the book was to be: neither archaeological nor topographical, nor even archaeologico-topographical.
