Description

Excerpt from A Memoir of the Late Rev. William Croswell, D. D., Rector of the Church of the Advent, Boston, Massachusetts This is acknowledged to be an Office of great delicacy, on ac count Of the close relationship Of the parties; but the difficulty in the case is very much diminished by the fact, that the biographer, in prosecuting his work, is not thrown upon his own resources. It is only with regard to the earlier incidents of the life, and the first developments of the mind and genius of his son, that the father is compelled to rely on the recollections fondly cherished in the family. Beyond these incipient stages Of boyhood and youth, there are abundant materials among the manuscripts of the deceased, which only require to be faithfully arranged and presented, to give a fair transcript of his history. With regard to the use Of these materials, however, it must be understood that no greater latitude can be allowed than may be found necessary for the full illustration of his life and character.
