IT was the declared Wish of John Ericsson that I should tell the story of his life. The executors of his estate, Messrs. George H. Robinson and Cornelius S. Bushnell, have accordingly placed ln my hands all of his letters and papers. His life-long friend, Mr. John O. Sargent, has freely opened to me the letters received from Captain Ericsson during fifty years of intimate intercourse and has given me the benefit of his recol lections of the great engineer. The associates of Cap tain Ericsson in his office work, Mr. Samuel W. Taylor and Mr. Valdemar F. Lassoe, have also rendered me valuable assistance. To all of these gentlemen my thanks are due. While the task of sifting the volu minous correspondence and collecting the necessary facts has not been a light one, it has brought full com pensation in the study of a great intellect and a gen erous heart.
