Letter

Scope and Content

From F W Maitland (1850-1906), historian, thanks for his review of his book [Domesday Book and beyond, reviewed in EHR vol. XII ]. Says "has never seen a review of anything that I have written which has taught me so much...", and if second edition of his book is published he will take into account Tait's criticisms; Tait has "Shaken me from my few firm beliefs on the matter of the manerium, that the term had a technical meaning."
