Excerpt

To all the friends of Mr. Aldrich who have generously placed in my hands the letters and memorials on which the following pages are grounded my cordial thanks are due. With the exception of the series of letters to Edwin Booth, and one other, all of Mr. Aldrich's more important correspondence has been collected and read. Yet the loss of the letters to Booth is a serious one. If any reader of the book should chance to know of their whereabouts he will confer a favor by communicating it.

To Mrs. Aldrich my obligation is of the deepest. The fine helpfulness that she gave through so many years to the poet has but taken a new form, in the active and resourceful aid that has been at the service of his biographer.

F. G.
