"This is an attempt by a son to record the life of his father... I have striven to be honest, but to be cold was beyond my wishes, as it was beyond my power. No one ever came within the sphere of my father's influence without feeling an enthusiasm for his character and an admiration for his powers; and in my own case, I willingly admit that love may have lent 'a precious seeing to the eye.'" --William W. Story, Preface (1851)
