PREFACE.

very graceful; energetic and picturesque description; and, above all, a strain of feeling which is unaffectedly simple, generous, and manly.

For such readers, however, the volume is not intended, but chiefly for those to whom it will be a memorial of a friend whose kindly heart was not less calculated to inspire affection than his abilities were to command respect.


   November, 1886.
