DROMENON

perienced is the more severe for two reasons: in the first place, I saw him but a week before his death. I was struck, and not only with his apparent health. Always a vital man, I was so impressed with his vitality that day as to remark on it to him, saying that I hoped it presaged the completion of his great work. He replied, with quiet assurance, that he believed it did. That could only mean for me, or for any who knew him, that he was ready to issue his magnum opus, on The Essential Ideas o f Gothic Architecture, a subject in which he deserved the title of a triumphant revolutionary and wherein, as all scholars know, he had brought his studies to the point at which even his most stubborn critics had to own his proofs were nearly clinched.
We spoke of a visit which he had lately made to reinvestigate some outlying and neglected evidence, and, though he went into no particulars, I left with the assurance that his great work was achieved. Alas: his work was over, but in another sense than I had dreamed. Nor can I have the melancholy satisfaction of knowing that he closed his case with his life. Thence sprang the second shock I have sustained. I turned to my sad task sustained by the thought that I should, at least, be permitted to present to the world the triumphant vindication of my honored friend's lifework. I found, instead of a final series of proofs, needing only to be assembled-a narrative, a narrative of an experience so strange that, had I not known of his sanity from having visited him after the event he records and only a few days before he made his record, I would have been impelled to suspect mental derangement.
