Excerpt from Life of Mary Anne Schimmelpenninck, Vol. 1 of 2
Penninck's life, which occupies the second volume, the utmost pains have been taken to procure materials with a view to continue the detail from the period when the autobiography of her early years concludes. But in this there was only partial success. Of a considerable part of her married life, the Editor has failed in obtaining any record; but from about the year 1835 materials abound. Especially are they rich in letters. So many have been kindly placed at the disposal of the Editor, that the only difficulty has been in the selection. Many of the letters which follow have been chosen as especially exhibiting the character of the writer, and her views on many interesting topics largely discussed in the present day.
