Excerpt from The New Nobility: A Story of Europe and America
The whole idea and scope of this volume are my own - and some of its early chapters; but the body of the book, especially the middle and last passages, is the work of my gifted personal friend, Rev. William M. Baker, of Boston, Massachusetts, who kindly responded to my invitation to edit and finish the "New Nobility." He has written much for the secular press, and has had a large clientage; but I think that he has never shown more talent and heart than in the assistance he has given to me in these pages.
