Henry James, Jr.
pubOne.info thank you for your continued support and wish to present you this new edition. The events of Mr. James's life- as we agree to understand events- may be told in a very few words. His race is Irish on his father's side and Scotch on his mother's, to which mingled strains the generalizer may attribute, if he likes, that union of vivid expression and dispassionate analysis which has characterized his work from the first.
