MY DEAR R.

You wrote me an affecting letter last April, when you had just received the news of President Lincoln's assassination. I have often thought of that letter whilst I have been composing this book. It suggested the connexion between the questions which are agitating your old and your adopted country. It showed how much you were imbued with the spirit of an English citizen, and, therefore, how solemnly, and with what brotherly interest you entered into the struggles and sorrows of the American people. You spoke warmly and affectionately of the studies which you had pursued, and of the friendships which you had formed, whilst you were with us. Perhaps these chapters from our own history will recall them to your mind, and will link the wonderful events of this day, in both continents, to the education which God has given our common fathers.—Believe me, very truly yours,

F. D. MAURICE.
