Excerpt from James Hain Friswell: A Memoir

I have read Memoirs which consist of bald records of travels, public dinners, and other func tions. Such things occur in the lives of most public men; they are all much alike, and have been written about to such an extent that the subject must be somewhat boring to the general public; nor do they record a man's life: it is the everyday incidents that make our lives. There fore, I scarcely mention my father's journeys or dinners, but I have tried to give a picture of those who surrounded him - his family and his friends.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from James Hain Friswell: A Memoir I have several times been asked by many well known people why a Life of my father has not been written, and, in these days of interviewing anybody and everybody, it no doubt seems curious that no authentic record has been given to the world of one who did his best to elevate and teach the people, and who wrote one of the most widely read and popular books of the century. It has been through no wish on my part to hide my father s name or fame, but because I doubted my own capacity, and because I have no account of his life except a few stray notes in his diaries and the remembrance of some stories of his youth. He was not a man to talk of himself, and he has left not a line of autobiography. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
