While his body was lying in state in the Capitol at Nashville, being viewed by the passing throngs of weeping friends, hundreds were visiting the bookstores of the city in search of Life Pictures, his latest work, containing a collection of his public addresses, lectures and magazines editorials. These were disappointed because the book could not be procured for the reason that it was out of print as a result of a fire in the publishing house, which destroyed the electrotypes, and old editions had been exhausted.Soon scores of letters and messages began to reach each of the surviving brothers appealing to us to write the story of his life, and to compile and publish his lectures, suggesting that we knew him and his works better than others, and that, therefore, we were best fitted for the task.

Convinced by this argument, and yielding to these importunities, we have performed the duty as best we could, and trust to the generosity of an appreciative and magnanimous public for a verdict of approval. Whatever else may be said, we have strictly tracked the truth in detailing facts, without a wish to give the slightest coloring. We have attempted to give only some of the most interesting incidents of his career as they occurred, from time to time, throughout his history - for to have attempted to relate all of them would have compelled us to write an additional volume if not many other volumes.In addition to the biography of our brother, which is a work of collaboration, we have seen fit to insert some statements prepared by a few of his friends who knew him best, giving them due credit therefor.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
