Of the pieces included in this volume the following, namely, those from the “ Dial,” Character,” “ Plutarch,” and the biographical sketches of Dr. Ripley, of Mr. Hoar, and of Henry Thoreau, were printed by Mr. Emerson before I took any part in the arrangement of his

papers. The rest, except the sketch of Miss Mary Emerson, I got ready for his use in readings to his friends or to a limited public. He had given up the regular practice of lecturing, but would sometimes, upon special request, read a paper that had been prepared for him from his manuscripts, in the manner described in the preface to “Letters and Social Aims,” — some former lecture serving as a nucleus for the new.

Some of these

papers he afterwards allowed to be printed; others, namely, “Aristocracy,” “Education,” “ The Man of Letters,” “The Scholar," “ Historic Notes of Life and Letters in New England,” “ Mary Moody Emerson," are now published for the first time.
