There are three persons who, better than any others, could have told the simple, uneventful story of Mr. Staples's life. Of these his wife stands first. She would not have me say it, but I must. And I regret unspeakably that any distrust of her own ability or fitness should have prevented her doing what I am sure she would have done most perfectly. As I have talked with her about her husband, her appreciation of his character and work has seemed so perfect, her sympathy with all his hopes and plans so lively and profound, that I never shall be reconciled to her unwillingness to be his biographer and the editress of his writings. I am only partly reconciled by the consideration that she would not have told, as I must tell, or be no true biographer of him, what noble furtherance her husband found in her, what intellectual and spiritual companionship, what rest in weariness, what patient cheer in sickness and in death.
The other two persons are Carlton Staples, the brother of Augustus, and Robert Collyer, his friend. Of these, the brother, at an early day, surrendered his claim on this task to the friend, who went on year after year hoping against hope that the burden would be lifted a little and opportunity be granted for telling what a man was here.
