Excerpt from A Memoir: Augustus Summerfield Merrimon
This sketch was written for the relatives and friends of him to whose memory these pages are dedicated, and being written for those who loved him and who feel more than a mere passing interest in his life and work, I feel t... hat there is little need of apologizing to them for its defects, in a literary point of view, and trust that they will be overlooked in according this tribute its only claim to merit - that of being what it is, a work of love.
The greater part of the material for the sketch has been obtained, as a matter of course, from relatives and friends; from sketches written in the past; from old letters and press-cuttings. These are responsible for many of the facts brought forward.
As to the character and personality of the subject, it has been my object to delineate it plainly and truthfully, as I knew it and revered it.
