Excerpt from Life and Select Discourses of Rev. Samuel H. Stearns
Tm: account of the Life and Character of Mr. Stearns has been extended beyond what was at first anticipated. Many of his letters, written in Europe, and copious extracts from his note-book for Italy, will be found incorporated with the memoir. It may not be necessary to apologize for the subject-matter or for the literary execution of them. But it should be remembered, that they were written with confidential and unstudied free dom, sketched, often in weariness and in haste, for the entertainment of friends, or to aid the author's own recollections of interesting scenes. From the very nature of the case, they could not be advantageously, revised, even if any one had been disposed to attempt a revision. They are, there fore, given to the press, without correction, just as they were written - as a record of first impressions, fresh and warm from the heart.
