Content: "The first chapter [A Scene from the Dolliver Romance] was published in the 'Atlantic' as an isolated portion, soon after his death; and subsequently the second chapter, which he had been unable to revise, appeared in the same periodical [Another Scene from the Dolliver Romance]. Between this and the third fragment there is a gap, for bridging which no material was found among his papers; but, after hesitating for several years, Mrs. Hawthorne copied and placed in the publishers’ hands that final portion, which, with the two parts previously printed, constitutes the whole of what Hawthorne had put into tangible form." George Parsons Lathrop, Introductory Note to "The Dolliver Romance," in The Complete Works of Nathaniel Hawthorne (13 vols.), vol. 11, p. 12.
