TO THE VERY REV. WILLIAM LOCKHART
OF THE INSTITUTE OF CHARITY
My dear Father Lockhart,
Your secession from the Anglican Church, while you were under Dr. Newman's care at Littlemore, was the instant cause of his resignation of the Vicarage of St. Mary's.
In linking your dear and honoured name with his, I am, therefore, not merely gratifying my own instinct of affection, but also recalling a passage in the history of the great Oxford Movement towards the Church of the Apostles.
I am, my dear Father Lockhart,
Always affectionately yours,
IN telling the story of the development of Newman's Religious Opinions, I have told it mainly as he has told it; and readers will, I think, concede to this little "Life" that it contains more of his own words, and a greater number of facts concerning himself than have otherwise been brought together in so brief a space. An unhampered use of the Apologia gives to the narrative not merely a present authenticity but a finality of statement never to be disturbed.
My acknowledgements are due to those by whose aid alone these pages otherwise gain authority—friends and comrades of the Cardinal: chief among them the Rev. F. S. Bowles, long the sole survivor of the three neophytes together reconciled to the Church at Littlemore.. My thanks are due also to the editors of the Contemporary Review and the Athenĉum for the permission to republish in this book extracts from articles I first contributed to their pages.
