Excerpt from Memoir of the Rev. John H. Rice, D.D: First Professor of Christian Theology in Union Theological Seminary, Virginia

In availing myself of the, aid which these let ters have afforded me in my work, I have hard ly ever stated any part of their contents before hand but have almost invariably left them to speak for themselves, and trusted that the read er would be able to follow the thread of the narrative through them, (although it is some times mixed up with other matters, ) so leaving the writer to tell his own story, and inter posing myself, only now and then, with such ad ditional notices as were necessary to supply omissions, and connect the parts together. In this manner, I have aimed to avoid repetition, and keep the narrative always moving. It is true, however, that I have also introduced other let ters, according to their dates, which do not con tinue the narrative, and so rather delay the rea der's progress a little but then it is always to let him take some new Views of the character of the pastor, or the writer, or the man and, in this way, i give him; I think, a fair compensation for stopping him, as it were, for a while on the road.
