Excerpt from The Master of the Hill: A Biography of John Meigs

As that noble biography of Charles Kingsley was written by his wife, whose intimate understanding made her the one supremely able to reveal Charles Kingsley's spirit, so it would have been the ideal thing that this biography of John Meigs should have been written by her whose life was most closely linked to his. For a time, indeed, Mrs. Meigs did intend to write this book, but various difficulties compelled her to postpone the undertaking. Then, through her gracious willingness, the responsibility came to me; and as a work of love and noble privilege I received it. As a boy, first, in the school, I knew the Master of the Hill, and afterwards as a teacher I worked under him for a little while. To this attempt to record his life I bring, therefore, some knowledge and much love.

The material which the following pages embody has come from many sources. Through the efforts of Mrs. Meigs herself was most of it gathered.
