TO

Dear Mr. Stedman:—
 The first volume of my published verse was inscribed to the memory of Matthew Arnold; I count myself happy that I am permitted to dedicate this book to you, whom, equally, it has been my privilege to know, to love, and to honor.

F.E.C.

Willing Terrace, Germantown,

Notes[edit]

  1. Mr. Edmund Clarence Stedman—to whom this collection of poems is dedicated—responded to Mrs. Coates' tribute in a letter dated 29 December 1904: "My dear lyrist, you,—than whom no woman of selecter station, no singer of more noble aim,—have conferred upon me what I recognize, and what all will pronounce, to be the richest tribute I have ever received..." [Life and Letters of Edmund Clarence Stedman. Vol. II. New York: Moffat, Yard and Co., 1910: 393-394.]
