Excerpt from Some Leisure Hours of a Long Life: Translations Into Greek, Latin, and English Verse, From 1850 to 1914
Mr H. A. J. Munro, Canon T. S. Evans, Sir Richard Jebb, Mr Archer Hind, Mr E. D. Stone, Mr F. St J. Thackeray, Dr Walter G. Headlam, and Professor Hardie.
If they have an ambition, it is of a very different and a much humbler kind. It is to throw a little light on the leisure hours of a long and busy life, which for more than sixty years found again and again one of its happiest relaxations in the composing of verses partly original and mostly translations.
