Excerpt from The Life and Letters of Christopher Pearse Cranch

When my father knew that he could not live, he directed me to send, after his death, his published and unpublished works to Mr. George William Curtis. I did this, and Mr. Curtis, although a very busy man, looked carefully into the manuscripts sent to him, having also the assistance and judgment of a collaborates. He decided that further publication would add nothing to the fame of his friend.

It was not until some time after that the plan of a volume of letters, connected by his own words from an autobiography, was decided upon, having its inception in his own wish, perhaps, to be better known to that public who already knew something of him through his published volumes and poems in the current literature of the day.

In this Life and Letters I have tried to give an impression of the man and his charm to his friends, and to show the many sides of his artistic, literary genius. As an aeolian harp vibrates to the winds of heaven in melodies, joyful, tender, or sad, so Cranch's music varied with his mood. Blows it east? It brings forth martial strains. Or south? It sings of the sea, the woods, and the birds. West? Cadenzas of sweet fancy and rollicking mirth play upon its strings. While the north wind brings out clear, philosophic thought, deep and incisive.
