Excerpt from Six Stories and Some Verses

Robert Beverly Hale died on the 6th of October, 1895. Few men have been loved as he was loved, in a very wide circle of friends. And such love was well deserved. It is to meet the wish of very dear friends, whom he loved very dearly, that this volume is published.

He was born in Milton, Massachusetts, September 5th, 1869. When he was but a few weeks old, the family removed to Roxbury, a part of Boston, and this was his home through his life. He passed through the regular courses of the Roxbury Latin School and of Harvard College, and graduated with credit at Cambridge in 1892.

He was a general favorite, and so soon as he left college various attractive proposals were made to him by older friends who hoped to secure his intelligent and cordial service, as a teacher, as a director of philanthropic work, as an editor, or in other ways. But he had already determined to devote his life to authorship or literature. With him, a careful resolution was a determination; it meant something unchangeable. He immediately planned out a course of systematic study for his purpose, - a course such as the limitations of college life hardly permit; and to that course he devoted himself as steadily as if he had been at the call of a college bell.

At the same time, and with the same steadfastness, he assigned to himself duties in what is called charity, in the relief of the lonely, in help of the ignorant, and in citizenship. Best of all, he gave the light and joy to a happy home.
