To publishers, authors and friends who have made this book possible, I wish to express deep appreciation: To Mrs. Douglas Robinson and Charles Scribner's Sons for permission to use extracts from My Brother, Theodore Roosevelt; to Herman Hagerdorn, John J. Leary, Jr., and John Burroughs (deceased), selections from whose books are used by permission of, and by special arrangement with, Houghton Mifflin Company, the authorized publishers; to the Pacific School of Religion for use of the book of which they hold the copyright, Realizable Ideals; to George H. Doran Company, Publishers, for free use of Fear God and Take Your Own Part by Theodore Roosevelt, copyright, 1916; to The Ladies' Home Journal for use of the valuable article by Theodore Roosevelt, “Shall We Do Away with the Church?” to the Forum for extracts that appeared in that magazine July and April, 1894, and July, 1904; to George H. Putnam's Sons, Publishers, New York and London, for courtesy in allowing the use of extracts from The Winning of the West, by Theodore Roosevelt; to the New York Evening Post for use of letters by Henry Cabot Lodge and Gifford Pinchot; to the North American Review for use of the article that appeared in that magazine, the issue of July, 1895; to the Outlook Company for use of the episode in Rome as described in the magazine by Mr. Roosevelt; to the Christian Herald for extracts from Theodore Roosevelt The Man, by Ferdinand C. Iglehart, D.D. I am also much indebted to the management of the Christian Register in which material forming the substance of this book was first published. Twelve of the chapters appeared in that journal, November 17, 1921, to February 2, 1922. The chapters, however, have been considerably expanded and five more added. I wish especially to express gratitude to Dr. Albert C. Dieffenbach, editor of the Christian Register, for editorial revision, wise counsel and friendly encouragement.

Washburn, Houghton Mifflin Company; Theodore Roosevelt, by William Roscoe Thayer, Houghton Mifflin Company; American Ideals, by Theodore Roosevelt, G. P. Putnam's Sons; Administering the Civil Service, by Theodore Roosevelt, G. P.
