Excerpt from Kallistratus, an Autobiography

About four years ago I published a story called "The Thing that hath Been." Of those who read the story, some thought that I meant by writing it to attack the Church of England, to which I am strongly attached; others that I meant to attack the system of public school education, which I think most salutary.

In fact, I only intended to represent the youth of Socrates as I conceived it, placing him in English surroundings; thus trying to explain the feelings which his countrymen entertained towards him - feelings compounded of mistrust and dislike, not unmixed with admiration and wonder. I hope that of those who may read this book, no one will think that I have done anything else than simply put in the mouths of the characters those opinions which I thought that they would be likely to hold.
