The Early Years of the Saturday Club free pdf Excerpt from The Early Years of the Saturday Club: 1855-1870 On the title-page of this book I appear as the author- the duty of preparing it was assigned to me by the Club, and I have worked for several years searching for and gathering material for this chronicle and building with it as best I might. But because of the eminence of the men who formed this happy company, and of those whom they chose to join them- also because, in those awakening and stirring times, they laboured, each in his own way, but sometimes combining, to serve, to free, and to elevate their Country, - the story of the Club took on larger dimensions. Hence, to hasten the appearance of the book, I asked our associate Professor Bliss Perry to give his help. It has been most valuable. At his suggestion, four other members have written sketches for the book- Mr. Perry contributed nine, Mr. Storey two, Governor McCall one, Mr. DeWolfe Howe one, Mr. Edward W. Forbes one Each is signed with the initials of the writer. To all of these my thanks are due for excellent help. The original plan of the Club was to preserve a record of its first half-century of existence. By sanction of the Club only sixteen years of its history are here presented, but they tell of its Golden Age. To the families or representatives of deceased members whose biographies, journals, or poems are quoted, the thanks of the Saturday Club are here rendered. If, by inadvertence, there has been failure to ask leave of these, the entire good-will of those whom I have approached makes us sure of their approval. The publishing houses have all shown us courtesy and generosity. First should be gratefully acknowledged the debt owed to Messrs. Houghton Mifflin Company for their furtherance of this work by freest permission to quote largely from books published by them, memoirs or poems, or those containing anecdotes of our members. Messrs. Little, Brown and Company kindly let us freely quote from "The Art Life of William Morris Hunt," by Miss Knowlton, and the "Memoir of Henry Lee," by Mr. John Torrey Morse, and to both of these authors we owe thanks.
