Excerpt from Andrew Hunter Dunn, Fifth Bishop of Quebec: A Memoir

Early in 1915,1 was asked by the Rev. E. Arthur Dunn if I would write something in the nature of a memoir of his father's life and work. I, naturally, appreciated the honour, but, at first, shrank from undertaking it, as I thought the duty could be more adequately performed by some better qualified person.

When - despite my want of personal acquaintance with the Bishop's life in Canada - it was impressed upon mo that I ought to do it, my intense love and admiration for the Bishop were the determining factors which led me to promise to do my best to carry out his family's wishes.

Many delays occurred, mostly to do with more than one change of occupation and place of residence, brought about by disturbing war conditions, and the general difficulties arising from the same cause. Apart from my own limitations, these adverse circumstances must be the excuse for imperfections in the memoir.

Good friends, both at home and in Canada, whose names appear in various parts of the book, have rendered most able assistance. If I had not received their generous and ready help, I could not have accomplished what I have.

Though too many to mention individually, to all of them I render grateful thanks.

One kindly and persistent helper, however, I must refer to by name.
