Harriet Beecher Stowe
Life of Harriet Beecher Stowe Compiled from her Letters and Journals by her son, Charles Edward Stowe.
I desire to express my thanks here to Harper & Brothers, of New York, for permission to use letters already published in the "Autobiography and Correspondence of Lyman Beecher." I have availed myself freely of this permission in chapters i. and iii. In chapter xx. I have given letters already published in the "Life of George Eliot," by Mr. Cross; but in every instance I have copied from the original MSS. and not from the published work. In conclusion, I desire to express my indebtedness to Mr. Kirk Munroe, who has been my co-laborer in the work of compilation.
CHARLES E. STOWE.
Hartford, September 30, 1889.
