THE HALLOWED INFLUENCES WHICH SURROUNDED

viii PREFACE.

On Easter Monday of this year, while on my way to an
early celebration of the Holy Communion, I was composing
in my mind the acknowledgment which I have just made.
The words which I have here written were framed then. In
common with so many others, I had been made very anxious
by the accounts of Maurice's health, but the news of the
previous day had brought better hope. Yet, I know not why,
I thought of him continually during the Holy Service which
followed, and throughout the day. The next morning I
learned that even whilst I was on my way to those holy
mysteries, pledges of Life Everlasting, my dear friend had
passed through the gate.

Praying that, with him, I may at the last be partaker of
our Father's heavenly kingdom, I also beseech the blessing of
God upon those friends through whom I came to know
Maurice so fully, Samuel Clark, Derwent Coleridge, Edward
Plumptre.

The reader, I am sure, will pardon an expression of
personal gratitude which I have long sought to utter. Having
done so, I take leave of a work which has interested me
deeply, and commend it to the judgment of my readers,
in the assurance that it will prove useful to them or not,
according as it shall lead them to love the Word of God
and to seek therein for deeper and fuller knowledge of
Christ.



Addington,

Dec. 21, 1872.
