Excerpt

This book will be found to be a more composite work than is commonly the case with a biography. As there were many aspects of the life and character of Dr. Bushnell to be considered and interpreted, it has naturally been the work of many hands to paint his picture; and it has been a part of the great pleasure of preparing the material that so many kind friends have generously responded to our calls for help.

In preparing the first portion of the history, covering a period of about sixty years, and closing with the chapter of family reminiscences, I have had the great advantage of rich contributions, such as those of the Rev. Dr. C. A. Bartol, and of the Right Rev. Bishop Clark, and that by the Rev. Dr. Leonard Bacon, originally prepared for this volume, but afterwards published in the New Englander, from which several full quotations have been made. In addition to these, we have the invaluable recollections of Dr. Bushnell's early friends, and some autobiographical fragments left by himself. As critics, revisers, and helpers, there have come to my aid several friends whose advice has been of inestimable value. I may name the Rev. Drs. Burton, Parker, and Twichell, all of Hartford; the Rev. A. S. Chesebrough, of Durham, Conn.; and the Rev. Dr. John H. Morison, of Milton, Mass. I have also quoted freely from interesting published articles, the authorship of which is acknowledged in their place.
