APOLOGIA PRO VITA SUA: BEING ENTITLED "WHAT, THEN, DOES DR. NEWMAN MEAN?" " Commit thy way to the Lord, and trust in Him, and He will do it.

But in consequence, my narrative must be in great measure documentary. Letters of mine tofriends have come to me since their deaths; others have been kindly lent me for the occasion; and I have some drafts of letters, and notes of my own, though I have no strictly personal or continuousmemoranda to consult, and have unluckily mislaid some valuable papers.
