his contention, Mr. Kriehn) analyzes the value of Froissart, Wal-
singham, and Knighton, on whose chronicles the traditional view is
based, and concludes that as sources for the question in hand they
are far inferior to the Continuation of the Eulogium and the
Anonymous French Chronicle. He then proceeds to reconstruct
the story of events at Smithfield, basing it largely on the last men-

uments printed in this number are Papers of Sir Charles R.
Vaughan, 1825-1835 (concluding installment).

C. Smith, of the University of Ohio, and Secretary Reuben Gold
Thwaites, of the Wisconsin State Historical Society.
