Life of William Rollinson Whittingham, Vol. 1 of 2

Excerpt from Life of William Rollinson Whittingham, Vol. 1 of 2: Fourth Bishop of Maryland When Mrs. Whittingham and her children asked me to write the Life of the late Bishop of Maryland, I frankly confessed that the thought of connecting my name with that of one so loved and revered was a temptation to undertake what, I feared, I was not fitted for. As a protection to them and to myself, I required that their selection of a biographer should be approved by certain friends of the family, and by others prominent in the Church. This approval was obtained; and what is at last finished was begun. The length of time those interested have been kept waiting, is due in part to deficiencies recognized from the first; but not to these only. "If the iron be blunt, then must he put to more strength." Much labor has been spent to no purpose - no sign of which is seen. But the desire to be accurate, one attainable merit, has also cost much. The reader is not troubled with references to what is out of reach, being chiefly manuscripts; but nothing, that is not evidently the expression of my own thoughts, has been written without the warrant of what would be received as trustworthy testimony could it be adduced. For all that is given to the reader, I am alone responsible. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
