PREFACE.

IF any apology be deemed necessary for obtruding this little work on public notice, the only one the Compiler has to offer is simply this :- It had long been the wish of many who knew Mr. Morris to possess an account of his early life; their requests, however, were unavailing till he was nearly in a dying state, when he dictated at intervals, and a friend wrote. It would have been very inconvenient to have so many copies as were needed written. At the joint request, therefore, of Mr. Morris and his friends, the writer of this undertook to prepare it for the press, after it had been declined by one who knew and respected Mr. M. but whose time and talents were almost incessantly occupied by an institution which is the glory of our land. It was thought proper to continue the Memoirs to Mr. M's. death ; and by the desire of many the Appendix is added.
