Excerpt from The Autobiography of the Rev. William Jay: With Reminiscences of Some Distinguished Contemporaries, Selections From His Correspondence, Etc
They are well aware that a large circle of friends are waiting, with eager expectation, for a work which its author had often promised should be forthcoming after his death, and which it was well known he had long been preparing. To such they trust it will prove all that they had anticipated from the pen of their esteemed friend; and that to a still wider circle, though now dead, he will yet speak. Some persons may wonder at the delay of the publication; but when they are informed that the whole of the manuscripts have had to be rewritten, from a hand writing requiring no little 'skill and patience to decipher, and then to be carefully compared and examined; and that much new matter had to be collected to continue the thread of the narrative, and to carry it through the closing scene, - it will be evident that no time has been lost, and that greater haste could only have been attended with defects and incompleteness.
