THE FOLLOWING MEMOIR
THE REV. LEGH RICHMOND, A. M.
LATE RECTOR OF TURVEY, AND CHAPLAIN TO HIS ROYAL
HIGHNESS THE LATE DUKE OF KENT,
IN presenting the following Memoir to the public, the editor has to express his regret that it should make its appearance so much later than the period originally designed, and under another name than what was announced in the prospectus. In explanation of both circumstances, it is necessary to state that the execution of the present work was first proposed to the editor by the family and more immediate friends of Mr. RICHMOND ; but his state of health at that time, and his temporary residence on the Continent for its recovery, opposed an insuperable difficulty.
In the meantime, the Rev. HENRY GAUNTLETT, vicar of Olney, Bucks, and well known as the author of the “Exposition of the Book of Revelation,” kindly engaged to undertake this necessary tribute of respect to the memory of an eminent minister and faithful servant of God, as well as to yield to the wishes and solicitations of the Christian public.
