NOTE

A NUMBER of letters which have come to me since the original edition of this selection of Mr. Lowell's Letters was published, are now included in their respective places in these volumes. They add nothing essential to the image of him presented in the former edition, but serve to fill up some minor parts of its outline with details which strengthen the likeness.

Among the letters now published for the first time, those to Dr. Francis Heath, the Frank Heath of college days, contain the record of one of the dearest of Lowell's early friendships, while those to the late Dowager Lady Lyttelton are memorials of one of the dearest friendships of his later years. Regret has been expressed that so few letters written during his residence in England are printed. I should have been glad to print more had more been at my disposal. But during this period the claims of official duties, of social engagements, and of incidental occupations of great variety, so engrossed the days as to leave him neither the time nor the inclination for the writing of letters.
