Sobre o livro
Whilst the greatest effort has been made to ensure the quality of this text, due to the historical nature of this content, in some rare cases there may be minor issues with legibility. Among the many friends whose hearts had been following Benjamin Lee, 2d, in the Great War, it is natural that the desire should have arisen to learn all that could be told of his last months of service. It was known to them that he had made careful notes on the work of the stations to which he had been attached, and that during his stay at Killingholme he had prepared a note-book from the log-book and the day-book which he had kept from the time of sailing. Some of them also knew that it had become a second nature with him, from early childhood, and a need of both heart and mind, to report the doings of his days in constant letters to his mother whenever he was absent from her. This book is the response to the desire of his friends to renew associations which had become so precious to them, and to possess some permanent memorial of his character and life.<br><br>It has seemed fitting to include with the letters in this memorial volume, not only those written during immediate preparation for the crowning year of his life, but, as well, some record of those earlier influences which had gone toward preparing him for the supreme hours of his young manhood.
