Excerpt
Introduction: In a book called ?The House of Harper?, published in this year, 1912, there are two letters of mine, concerning ?The Right of Way?, written to Henry M. Alden, editor of Harper?s Magazine. To my mind those letters should never have been published. They were purely personal. They were intended for one man?s eyes only, and he was not merely an editor but a beloved and admired personal friend. Only to him and to W. E. Henley, as editors, could I ever have emptied out my heart and brain; and, as may be seen by these two letters, one written from London and the other from a place near Southampton, I uncovered all my feelings, my hopes and my ambitions concerning The Right of Way. Had I been asked permission to publish them I should not have granted it. I may wear my heart upon my sleeve for my friend, but not for the universe.
