The public appreciation of the first edition of Hastings of Bygone Days - and the Present which rendered necessary the announcement Out of Print, in 1919, was naturally gratifying to the Author and Compiler, who'spent three years in its production. Insistant applications for the work were made to the publishers, who decided that a second edition, corrected and revised, was called for.~ The work was sent to all parts of the world where natives of Hastings had settled, While the encomiums of the Press on the first edition'were most flattering and encouraging.
I desire to tender my thanks and appreciation for their kindly help to Mr. J. A. Ray, in revising the chapters on Ancient Hastings to my friend Mr. James Castello, for his revision of the List of Old Guide Books of Hastings (of which he possesses a unique collection) to Mr. Thomas Parkin, m.a., for allowing me the run of and loans from his valuable local collec tions' and library of books and Views of the town to my old friend Mr. Alfred Bryant of Enfield, an old Hastinger (now nearing ts ninetieth year), for'bis help in the compilation of the Chronological Table of Events, from his notes collected and preserved through his long life and to others who in any way have rendered their help.
