Memoirs of Himself free pdf Excerpt from Memoirs of Himself The life of Robert Louis Stevenson is so well known to his admirers and readers that it hardly seems necessary to give any of the details here. Let it be sufficient to say that he was born in Edinburgh, on November 13th, 1850, and died at Apia, Samoa, on December 3d, 1894. These recollections of his childhood were written in San Francisco, California, when the author was thirty years of age. The manuscript is written in ink on twenty-three pages of an ordinary quarto blank book, and is full of alterations and corrections. One or two passages have been so inked out that it is impossible to decipher more than a word here and there, and as Stevenson himself did this, I think it better not to try to decipher them. The manuscript is here printed exactly as it was written. While this paper has never been printed in full, references and quotations from it will be found in Mr. Graham Balfour's "Life of Stevenson." In the American edition they occur in Volume I, pp. 40, 41, 49, 53 and 203. When I had the manuscript typewritten with the view of printing it I sent copies to Sir Sidney Colvin, Stevenson's literary executor, and Mr. Thomas J. Wise, asking for their opinions and criticisms, and I quote some of their remarks. Sir Sidney Colvin says in part: "I quite agree with you as to the interest and importance of this paper.
