Excerpt from A History of Domestic Manners and Sentiments in England: During the Middle Ages There are at leali two ways of arranging a work like this. I might have taken each particular divifion of the fubjeet, one after the other, and traced it feparately through the period of hifiory which this volume embraces; or the whole fubjeet might be divided into hiftorical periods, in each of which all the difiereilt phafes of focial hiﬂory for that period are included. Each of thefe plans has its advantages and defeets. In the firfi, the reader would perhaps obtain a clearer notion of the billory of any particular divifion of the fubjeet, as of the hiftory of the table and of diet, or of games and amufements, or the like, but at the fame time it would have required a certain effort of comparifon and fiudy to arrive at a clear view of the general quefiion at a particular period. The fecond furnithes this general view, but entails a certain amount of what might almofi be called repetition. I have chofen the latter plan, becaufe I think this repetition will be found to be only apparent, and it feems to me the beft arrangement for a popular book.
