Excerpt from Birth-Place, Home, Churches, and Other Places The following brief Notes are t intended in the slightest degree to supply the place of a Life of the Author of The Christian Year; but it is felt that everything connected with such a saintly man as Mr. Keble must needs be of deep interest to all who are looking forward with hope to that rest into which he has entered; and it is thought that the Photographs will t only be looked at with real interest as faithful representations of the places connected with the much loved name of Keble, but will also help the reader of and life of the great Christian poet to represent more clearly to his mind the events recorded about him. In the imperfect outline of the life Mr. Keble here presented to the reader, much has been taken from letters in The Guardian newspaper by an old and well-kwn friend of the Poet. Some of the events mentioned are as yet kwn to hardly any one else but the author of these fragmentary tes, whose apology for undertaking this work at the request of the Artist whose Photographs he treats about, is that he has intimately kwn and reverently loved for many years the holy man of whom, with much diffidence and with deep veneration, he ventures to speak, and that it has been his high privilege to have been placed by him in various offices of trust.
