MY DEAR PEILE,

Your high distinction as the Master of a Cambridge College, as the Vice-Chancellor of the University, and as a Scholar, might well make me shrink from dedicating to you, even with your so cheerfully given consent, the present volume with all its faults and shortcomings. But after all it is as a friend that I for my part do and must always first think of you. We were Undergraduates and Fellows and Assistant Tutors of the same College at the same time; we have often travelled together both at home and abroad; few men, indeed, have known or know each other more intimately. And, not to speak of your intellectual gifts, my remembrance of you during all these years presents an unbroken record of wonderful kindliness, and of perpetual thought for everybody but yourself. Of our long and close friendship, please accept the association of your name with this book as a most sincere, however inadequate, memorial.

Ever affectionately yours,

JOHN W. HALES.
