compiled by the Bishop's granddaughter with her preface & notes on the illustrations to the front; Bishop Ward is gratefully remembered in the Isle of Man as one of the founders of King William's College, and for his last heroic struggle, when blind and in breaking health, to avert the merging of the Diocese of Sodor and Mann in that of Carlisle - a struggle of which the success was not indeed assured till a week or two after his death. Little had been known of his personal life until a mass of letters and other papers came to hand &, as his only surviving grandchild, it seems that much in them is worth preserving as a memorial of a man of independent judgment, of indomitable faith and immense warmth of heart, and as throwing fresh light on a unique episode in the Church history of the British Isles.
