This has entailed the writing of a good number of "fair copies" in Greek, some of which I have now ventured to have printed privately and sent to some of my friends, to two of whom... I am especially indebted... I hope that any former member of Division I, who happens to cast eye upon these Versions, may feel the same happiness in his memories of that Division as the author of this work.' 022821
