"Probably no other historian in America [had] the knowledge possessed by Professor Andrews of the manuscript sources in England needful for the understanding of the policy of that country or a firmer grasp of the commercial aspects of the political thought of the times. The picture which he gives of the 'old colonial system' is of the highest interest and value."?James Truslow Adams
