Excerpt

I have to acknowledge with gratitude the help I have received from many of William Black's friends in preparing this memoir. The freedom with which they placed at my disposal the letters they possessed calls for my sincere thanks.

To Sir Robert Giffen and Mr. E. D. J. Wilson I am specially indebted for their kindness in supplying me with their personal recollections of Black in his early days. I should like to bear adequate testimony to the debt I have incurred to Mrs. Black, his wife, and to Mrs. Morten, his sister, in writing these pages; but I fear that no words that I could use here would sufficiently express the extent of my obligation to them.

LONDON, March, 1902.
