I'm trying to remember the author of a quotation, where the author addresses the reader in the far future. It's says something like "if you are reading this in 100 or perhaps 1000 years I hope the reader forgives me my foibles". I think it's in the epilogue of the book.
I thought it was Henry of Huntingdon or Gerald of Wales but cannot find anything like that. Probably a British medieval author, but I'm starting to wonder if I've totally misremembered.
Anyone have any idea? Thanks!
