“ The Log of THE MAYFLOWER.–To the Editor of the Times. Sir,-It may
probably interest your correspondent, Mr. Howard Evans, and others if we mention
ihat, by the kind permission of the Bishop of London, we published last year a photo-
zincographic facsimile reproduction of the Bradford MS. The “Mayflower" Logi'
which is now to be restored to the United Slates.

"Our reproduction was, by arrangement, limited to 350 copies; but some copies are still to be had through the usual channels.

“Governor Bradford's MS. is insufficiently described as “The “ Mayflower” Log.' It contains the log and the names of those who sailed in that vessel ; but far more, also, than this it covers a period of forty years, from 1606 to 1646. For the life of the fugitives (from Scrooby) while in Holland, and for the negotiations which brought about their emigration to America, it is the only anthority.' For the early struggles of the Pilgrims in New England it is our main authority. And for the political and economical history of the colony during the years when its corporate and organic life was a-making Bradford is our only witness.' The title chosen by Governor Bradford himself for the MS. is. Of Plimoth Plantation,' _WARD AND DOWNEY.”
