Overview

Excerpt from Essays and Monographs

In this volume, we have aimed to collect from the writings of Professor William Francis Allen papers upon educational, religious, literary, and historical subjects, illustrative of the breadth of his scholarship and his keen interest in all that makes for better living. To these we have added the more important of his monographs upon Roman, Germanic, and English institutions. Space forbade printing selections from his political papers, and from the interesting and valuable mass of material in manuscript and print upon the South, written during his residence there in the later years of the Civil War. The Bibliography, however, gives a complete list of his published writings, including all his review articles, with unimportant exceptions; and it is to be hoped that at some time his papers on the South may be brought into a book.

These selections, written at different times, and lacking the final revision of his own hand, must not be taken as the last word he might have wished to speak; yet so careful was his workmanship that we do not hesitate to print them as we have found them. We believe that students will gladly read the helpful words he penned, and that American scholars who were proud to count him among their number will appreciate this collection, illustrating his acute, judicious, and comprehensive investigations.

We have had the valuable assistance of Mrs. Margaret Andrews Allen and Dr. Charles H. Haskins, of Madison, in the revision of proof-sheets and the preparation of the Index.
