Excerpt from Personal Reminiscences of Henry Irving, Vol. 1
Keep nothing sacred; 'tis but just The many-headed beast should know.
For nearly thirty years I was an intimate friend of Irving; in certain ways the most intimate friend of his life. I knew him as well as it is given to any man to know another. And this know ledge is fully in my mind, when I say that, so far as I know, there is not in this book a word of his inner life or his outer circumstances that he would wish unsaid; no omission that he would have liked filled.
Let any one who will read the book through say whether I have tried to do him honour - and to do it by worthy means: the honour and respect which I feel; which in days gone I held for him; which now I hold for his memory.
