E. L. LUSHINGTON, ESQ., D.C.L., LL.D., ETC.,
LATE PROFESSOR OF GREEK IN THE UNIVERSITY OF GLASGOW.
MY DEAR LUSHINGTON,
Any old pupil of yours, in finishing a work either of classical scholarship or illustrative of ancient literature, must feel that he owes to you, probably more than to any one else, the impulse which directed him to these studies. It is with this feeling that I should wish to associate your name with this volume. Many of your former pupils can confirm my recollection that one of the happiest influences of our youth was the admiration excited by the union, in your teaching, of perfect scholarship with a true and generous appreciation of all that is excellent in literature. The intimate friendship of many subsequent years has afforded me, along with much else of still higher value, ample opportunities for verifying these early impressions.
Ever affectionately yours,
