THESE MEMOIRS OF HIS LIFE IN WAR TIMES -
EXTENDED TO INCLUDE AN ACCOUNT OF HIS WORK
FOR THE UPBUILDING OF THE CHURCH IN TENNESSEE
AND FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION IN
THE SOUTH - ARE MOST AFFECTIONATELY
THE chapters of this volume containing the Memoirs of the war were written by Bishop Quintard about the year 1896 and are to be read with that date in mind. The work of the editor thereon has been devoted to bringing them into conformity with a plan agreed upon in personal interviews with Bishop Quintard about that time.
In the first and in the last two chapters of the book the editor has drawn freely, even to the extent of transcribing entire sentences and paragraphs, upon the Bishop's own addresses in the Diocesan Journals of Tennessee; upon Memorial Addresses by his successor, the Rt. Rev. Dr. Gailor; upon material used in some of the chapters of the Editor's "History of the Church in the Diocese of Tennessee;" and upon documents preserved in the archives of The University of the South.
Thanks are due to the Rev. Bartow B. Ramage, the Rev. Rowland Hale and Mr. George E. Purvis, among others, for valuable assistance in the original preparation of the Memoirs.
