In choosing a subject for a thesis in the Vergilian Bimillennium, it was only natural and fitting that the choice should fall in the field of Vergil. The difficulty lay in selecting a particular locality of the field that had not been especially explored by the many Vergil admirers.

Friendships and Family Ties seemed to have been treated by no writer under such a title nor to have been discussed at length in any book or article. Here was presented an opportunity to renew my acquaintance with Vergil through a more intimate and thoughtful study of his poems and to search out from the numerous books on the general subject of Vergil what conclusions other writers had reached and to follow the line of through of the contemporary Latin scholars, who were contributing to the current literature of the Vergilian year.

I was perhaps fortunate in finding that no one has treated the subject at any great length, for it required more serious thought on my part; my interest grew with the task; it was fascinating to piece together the little bits and make a unified whole.
