Annotation

Whilst the greatest effort has been made to ensure the quality of this text, due to the historical nature of this content, in some rare cases there may be minor issues with legibility. Of studying him in his health and sickness, in his serious and in his frivolous moments, should direct public attention to those attributes of his character which are scarcely even suspected by the many admirers of his wonderful intellect. Nor Is it amiss that this task should be left to two women to perform. Many people worshipped him, and yet more respected him, but it was at a distance. We knew him in his home, and perhaps it needed a woman to appreciate the depth and the width of the great, kindly nature that lay beneath that remarkable exterior. That the spur would urge us beyond our capacity and expose us to the criticism of those who cannot understand was only to be feared and expected. Our own private lives were so much bound up with his during those years, that they cannot be separated. The pedantic may sneer at the trivialities of this book and the unsympathetic may scoff at our weakness, but we cannot let the personal reputation.
