T may easily be believed that this would have
been a better book had it been written by another hand, and written years ago while the Whittingham correspondence and many other useful papers were extant, and while there still lived certain men whose recollections might have increased the information, as well as the number, of these pages.

In his advice and cheerful, untiring labor I have found inestimable help. Of his skill I need not speak.
