INTRODUCTION
HE
preparation of my Father’s biography has been undertaken as asacred trust. Early in the spring of 1894 he was asked by an oldfriend for permission to issue a biography with his approval. Thismy father declined to do, and, on that occasion, expressed the wish that Ishould assume the task when his life-work was ended. In reply to myobjection that such an undertaking demanded a literary experience that Idid not possess, he said: “I don’t care anything about that. What I want isthat you should correct inaccuracies and misstatements that it would bedifficult to straighten out during my life. You are the one to do this. All myfriends will unite on you and give you their assistance. There are manywho think they know me better than any one else, and would feelthemselves best able to interpret my life. If you do not do this work therewill be many inaccurate and conflicting ‘Lives.’”Whatever diffidence I have felt in executing this trust, it has beenundertaken as a filial duty and esteemed to be a great privilege. It wouldhave been my choice to have had more leisure for accomplishing the work,but the announcement of unauthorized biographies has necessitated theimmediate publication of the present volume. Otherwise the desire of myfather would have been thwarted. At a later date it is intended that a morestudied interpretation of his life should be prepared to meet the expresseddesire for a fuller account of his career.I would gratefully acknowledge the kindness of many friends who havecontributed important data and incidents. Special acknowledgment is alsodue to Rev. John Bancroft Devins, of “The New York Observer,” whosevaluable assistance has greatly facilitated the early completion of the work.Father lived solely for the glory of God and for the spread of the Gospelof Jesus Christ. It is the earnest prayer of his family that in this record of his career his life’s purpose may be conserved.W
