I wish to express my gratitude to the McGill University Social Science Research Fund for two grants in 1969 and 1971, for obtaining microfilms from the Archivio di Stato di Venezia; to the Director and the staff of the Archivio, and especially to Signorina Una Frizziero, for providing me with the requested microfilms; to the National Foundation for Jewish Culture and the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture for grants enabling me to take a leave of absence from the Department of History at McGill University during the academic year 1972–1973; and to Professor Isadore Twersky of Harvard University, for his sage counsel and strong support as director of my Ph.D. thesis.
