Excerpt from Henry Clay Payne: A Life

Madame: At your request, with data mainly fur nished by you and by Mr. Whitney, I have prepared, the following biographical sketch of your husband. You will readily observe that not all' the material placed at my disposal has been employed. At the time of Mr. Payne's death many of his friends and admirers wrote you letters of appreciation of his life and character and tributes of their affection for him. All of these I would gladly have gathered into these pages save that the result would have been a volume too cumbersome for biographical purpose and a clo~ying of the narrative by frequent repetition of the same encomiumt. I have therefore ventured to scatter through this volume only such letters of tribute and rem iniscence as illustrate the successive periods of Mr. Payne's life and illuminate his character. I respectfully: suggest to you that all the letters, used and unused, be. Bound m their autograph and preserved in some historical library. 3.
