Excerpt from Charles Woodruff Shields: A Biographical Sketch
The ideals of youth are seldom realized, and yet some men see the fruit of their labors, being so blessed that after a long and laborious life, they die as young in feeling and in enterprise as they were in early youth. In his eightieth year Charles Woodruff Shields was as much himself, as fully in possession of all his fine powers and qualities as he had been in the prime of his years. It was therefore with a sense of fulfilment that he left in the hands of a friend certain manuscripts for posthumous publication as the completion of his life work. His choice fell upon one who is a layman to both lines of the study which so engrossed the author, a fact interpreted as meaning that the editor was to confine himself strictly to the task of verbal correction, and to avoid all effort at revision or rearrangement of the matter. This is the more evident as most of the philosophical and apologetic material had already been printed in one form or another, and had had the careful revision of the author. What follows as the last division of the "Final Philosophy" is therefore given exactly at it was intended to stand, and in connection with the two preceding volumes needs no introduction.
