Excerpt from Memoirs of the Very Reverend James F. Callaghan In giving this book to the world, the chief object of the compiler is to preserve to Catholic literature some of the valuable writings of the late Rev. Dr. Callaghan. In doing this, it seemed fitting that a few striking incidents of so full and fervid a life should precede the writings, in the form of Memoirs.
