Descrizione

The Preface of the second volume of this book was much shorter than the Preface of the first this shall be shorter still, indeed of the shortest. For I have endeavoured to say in the body of the text what I thought material, and I do not wish to say anything immaterial either here or elsewhere. I have only to thank critics for the kindness with which the work has been generally received hitherto; to hope that this part of it — the most difficult and trying, no doubt, of the three, as touching matters most inter esting to most people — will not be found unworthy of the continuance of that kindness; to apologise to any one whom I may have offended, in any of the senses of that word, while writing on a matter where offence is very hard to avoid unless one writes with a flavourless and colourless scholasticism and to make my bow.
