As soon as I set myself seriously to the task of writing a biography of Huntington, I saw that the only way to bring up the living man, with all his virtues, failings, and idiosyncrasies, would be to arrange his correspondence as far as possible in Chronological order. So I wrote to the Press, and requested owners of letters to be good enough to lend me the originals. My appeal met with a generous response; several hundred letters came to hand; and by means of them I was able to restore the dates of many letters, the names of the receivers, and the excised passages, some of which proved auto biographical. As it is my ambition to publish, after a while, the whole of Huntington''s correspondence in chronological order, with annotations - to treat Huntington''s letters, indeed, as I have treated those of the poet Cowper - I trust that other persons who have originals will communicate with me, and so help to make the work''as complete as possible.
