The autobiographical portion of this volume has been printed, with some abridgment and with a few verbal alterations and corrections, from Mr. Pell's own manuscript.<br><br>For the Introduction the Editor is responsible. His thanks are due to many who have helped him, more particularly to Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Pell of Wilburton Manor, Miss Emily Vaughan, the Hon. Emily Winn, and the Rev. William Bury for suggestions and anecdotes; and to the Right Hon. James Bryce for leave to print the valuable appreciation of his friend which is appended to the Introduction. The Editor is well aware of the difficulty of describing, in adequate fashion, a personality so varied, so original, and so much beloved as was that of the subject of this memoir. He takes this opportunity of asking for the indulgence of Mr. Pell's many friends for the imperfections of the picture here portrayed.
