Excerpt from The Aeneid of Virgil: Book III
The editing of this and some other books of the Aeneid was originally undertaken by an accomplished scholar, who, however, found himself unable, for reasons of an official nature, to complete the task. His notes were placed in my ha... nds by the General Editor, and as they were in a more or less finished condition it appeared that there would be little left for me but to supply Intro duction and Appendices, and to correct the press. On closer study I found that I could not entirely accept some of the views advanced, however ably supported; and as it was decided that the edition should appear under my name, and not, as I had hoped, under our joint names, I asked and obtained leave to use a free hand. I am thus responsible for any errors that appear, while I can not claim credit for many felicitous turns and scholarly elucidations.
