Excerpt from Recollections of a Long Life My father felt a deep interest in biography, but was persuaded that it should be confined within narrow limits. He thought that, as Dean Burgon said, while yet the man lived freshly in the memory of his friends, while his sayings were remembered, and his aspect and demeanor were easily recalled, then one who knew him well should commit to paper a living image of the man, should so exhibit him that later generations might feel that they had seen and known him. Many of the world's good men have no personal memorial because this was not done. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
