O Wind Blown Ghost
Mr. Metcalfe is Principal Librarian of the Public Library of New South Wales and Honorary General Secretary of the Library Association of Australia, so that it is especially appropriate for him to have written this paper, and for the Public Library of New South Wales to publish it.
I commend it as a study of political trends in the early days of the Colony, as well as a literary and bibliographical "ghost" story. More important, it is a well deserved tribute to a great librarian of England.
On behalf of the Trustees of the Public Library of New South Wales, I have to thank the Royal Australian Historical Society for permission to reprint, and the Manchester Public Libraries for permission to add the manuscript fascimiles from the Edwards papers, which they kindly supplied. Edwards was their first librarian, and this year they celebrate their Centenary; we shall be pleased if this publication can be regarded as a tribute to them as well as to Edwards.
