Excerpt from The Life and Pontificate of Pope Leo XIII

The Pontiff in his ministrations and of the man and his qualities in his relation to the affairs of the world, in which, perhaps, he exercised a more extensive and bqheficent in?uence than any of his predecessors since the sixteenth century. It was not my intention to write either a panegyric of or..a1'1 apologia for the life of Leo XIII. Addressed as this biography is primarily to Catholics, I hope that while it manifests a Catholic spirit, in 1ts -pages may be found some enlightenment for non Catholic minds on the Organisation of the Church itself and its mission to mankind I can only say that every oe'ue has been taken to ensure accuracy in the the events record;ed that for many details I am indebted to enjoyed the confidence of Leo XIII. And many recognised sources of authentic information. Though with many of the late Cardinal Manmng' s iews on matters concerning the Papacy and the policy of the Church I was personally familiar, it is my pleasant duty to say that to the Cardinal's biographer, Mr. E. Sheridan Purcell, I owe some of the published Opinions of the second Archbishop of vvest minster.
