Excerpt from Herbert Kynaston: A Short Memoir, With Selections From His Occasional Writings
This little work has been compiled chie¿y from a ms. Book written in Dr. Kynaston's exquisite hand, and from the lectures he delivered at Durham on Greek Poetry. I have also to thank M... r. Arthur Coleridge for extracts from his diary, and the publishers of the Lyra Messianim for permission to print hymns from that collection, Mr. Orby Shipley for the translation of Damien's Gloria Paradisz', which would otherwise have escaped me, and Dr. Lowe, of Durham, for useful suggestions and careful revising of proofs, by which errors and omissions have been mended. Perhaps some matter has been admitted which the fastidious taste of my old friend would have rejected as lacking that final polish which his best work shows, but there were always happy phrases which made rejection difficult. Old Etonians will be reminded of their past, and though perhaps the name of Califano has passed into oblivion, the Quarter Master will still be a living figure. E. D. Stone.
