Excerpt from Diary of Sir Michael Connal, 1835 to 1893: Edited With Biographical Sketch

The living hand which could have given connection to the jottings and reminiscences of this Diary never even began the contemplated task, and no other hand can accomplish it successfully. The following brief notes have a purpose only in bringing into prominence a few of the leading ideas suggested by some degree of personal inter course with Sir Michael and by a careful perusal of the letters and memorials he has left.

As far as Sir Michael is personally concerned, the whole Diary might have been printed. His life will stand the keenest scrutiny, and his worst enemy would never subject him to such merciless criticism as he does himself. Had this Diary not been of such a private nature it would have been put into the hands of a more experienced editor, who could have given more time and undivided attention to it. Of this, however, the reader may rest assured, that, as far as I can be conscious, my judgment has been unbiased. In the extracts I have made, my object has been to select what will show Sir Michael on all sides of his character. Where it was necessary to make insertions for the sake of clearness I have used square brackets, but as a rule the exact text has been given, even at the cost of expression. If even a few are impressed by the revelation of this quietly heroic life, my labour will not have been in vain, and I shall have helped him who is no longer with us further to realize his cherished wish and his earnest prayer, to be useful in his day and generation.
