Excerpt from The Old Humanities, and the New Science

In writing a prefatory note to an American reprint of this notable address there are three things to consider - the writer, his subject, and the occasion. The greatly beloved author had a multitude of friends in all lands, and far abler pens have written much concerning him during the past twelve months.
