Excerpt from Memorial of the Life and Labors of Rt. Rev. Stephen Vincent Ryan, D. D., C. M, Second Bishop of Buffalo, N. Y
It was thought, instead, that a judicious condensation of the chief features in so remarkable a career, with a brief outline of his talents and character... , would be a welcome volume, at this time, not only to the priests and people of his lately cherished flock, but to thousands besides throughout the land, who had known and revered the lamented prelate.
There was expressed, morever, a widespread desire to possess in succinct yet enduring form the full details of the obsequies, and the recorded evidence of the general citizen sorrow so impressively manifested at the Bishop's death and funeral; and to preserve especially the many eloquent tributes paid to the memory of the deceased by Protestant and secular pens.
This has been done, to the best of the writer's ability, in the present volume. The principal events connected with Bishop Ryan's life and death have been carefully collected and collated, and the story told simply and in the natural order of their happening.
