Excerpt from Edmund Garrett: A Memoir Edmund Garrett kept no diary, and he was a wanderer, so that the collection of his papers is not extensive. I have drawn in my Memoir principally on his letters, on the files of the newspapers in which he wrote, and on the recollections of myself and other of his friends. I am indebted to many of these friends, both in this country and in South Africa, for letters which they have placed at my disposal, and more especially to his cousin. Miss Agnes Garrett. He seldom allowed a mail to go without its letter to her, and at times this collection of daily or weekly correspondence almost takes the place of a diary. To his Cambridge friends Mr. J. H. Badley and Mr. J. J. Withers, and to his colleague upon the Cape Times, Mr. G. H. Wilson, I am indebted for personal recollections which are embodied in the Memoir. The larger portion of a daily journalist's writings is necessarily fugitive. They are written "on the running stream," and the law of evanescence applies to them, irrespective of their quality.
