Excerpt

I owe the suggestion of this volume to my friend, Professor Albert H. Smyth. I am indebted to him also for kind and efficient help in preparing it for publication.

Professor Smyth's wide knowledge of English literature and his keen desire to further the love of it in others make his influence in Philadelphia akin to that of the late Professor Henry Reed.

The first of the following papers was written mainly in 1889. I have made slight changes in it since.

The paper, A Visit to Wordsworth," was in part published by Dr. Christopher Wordsworth (afterward Bishop of Lincoln), in 1851, in his life of the poet; passages were omitted by him because of their reference to persons then living; there is no reason now why my record should not appear as a whole.

I rejoice to be able to say something in regard to Sir John Taylor Coleridge, -- better known as Mr. Justice Coleridge, -- the friend at once of Dr. Arnold and of Mr. Keble. Nothing in the way of memoir of this eminent man has ever appeared in this country, nor has any adequate life been written . . .
