Preface: 'During thirty-three years spend at Eton I have served under three different Head Masters, and for the last twenty-nine years have had the honour of helping them with the work of Division I. 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
