Taken from preface - "The correspondance was private between father and son. It was not written for publication, but copies of extracts were circulated in a private reading circle. Many appreciations were received, and on the suggestion of several readers this volume is printed for private circulation-without the knowledge of the writer." This second edition includes some later letters.
