It is now four years since it fell to my lot to make known to the world the poems of Thomas Traheme. For considerably more than two centuries they had remained in manuscript, unknown and uncared for. They had fallen into my hands by what I must needs think was a very remarkable series of accidents ;and I account it as one of the most fortunate incidents of my life that I immediately discerned their value and importance. When I published them I did not fear to express my belief that they were the work of one of the finest and noblest spirits that ever existed, and it was a great gratification to me that my own estimate of Traherne was accepted as a true one by all competent judges. I do not think that any one whose opinions are worth consideration would now deny that this successor of George Herbert, and contemporary of Milton, Crashaw and Vaughan, is worthy to be mentioned in the same breath with them.
