Book Description:
HERBERT SYMONDS A M E M O I R FOREWORD On the death of Dr. Herbert Symonds there was a very strong feeling expressed by many friends and acquaintances that an account of his life and influence should be given permanent form in a volume containing extracts from some of his sermons and essays. A few personal friends undertook the compilation of such a book. For them it was a labour of love they rejoiced in the opportunity to give tangible form to the universal appreciation of the Vicars worth, as well as to meet the pressing demand for copies of his more important public utterances. The hope is expressed that this memoir contains at least some of the things that eager and admiring friends have longed to possess. The editors realize how very unworthy it is, but they felt that it was wiser to publish this most imperfect memoir now than to postpone it until time and greater diligence could produce a more creditable volume.

In Memoriam. I The life and work of Herbert Symonds Vicar of Christ Church Cathedral, Montreal were so striking and fruitful that friends have felt impelled to compile and publish this little volume as an expression of their love and a grateful remembrance of his comradeship and inspiration through many years. His more intimate associates knew very well that in heart, in intellect, and in personality Dr. Symonds touched the lives of a wide circle of men and women in this Dominion, both known and unknown to him. It was not, however, until death claimed him for her own that they began to realize the full richness of that life or the manifold influences that radiated therefrom. 12 A Biographical Sketch It is no small matter for a man, pursuing without sensation or conscious display, his ordinary course as a minister of the gospel, to call forth even a passing interest in his utterances and activities, in a great Metropolitan city like Montreal. When however at the end of eighteen strenuous years of service that ministry was closed forever, . and men and women of varied races and all creeds paused in bewilderment to express to one another the consciousness of their own loss and the loss that had fallen upon their city, it required no special gifts of vision or understanding to realize that something very unusual had happened. Thousands of citizens received the news of his death as the passing of a personal friend. Tens of thousands, not only in Montreal but throughout the Dominion, men and women who knew him not in the flesh but whose own spiritual position and yearnings found expression on the lips and through the pen of the late Vicar, felt that a light in the ecclesiastical firmament had gone out. The evidences of this most unusual and . apparently unprecedented expression of A Biographical Sketch 13 public esteem, ecclestastical, civic, social and personal, will be referred to later...
