Note 013
From Chapter 69 of the Decline & Fall

The dates of years in the margin, may throughout this chapter be understood as tacit references to the Annals of Muratori, my ordinary and excellent guide. He uses, and indeed quotes, with the freedom of a master, his great collection of the Italian Historians, in 28 volumes; and as that treasure is in my library, I have thought it an amusement, if not a duty, to consult the originals.
