The narrator had been prepared for Usher's condition because of the letter he'd received memories of what Usher had been like as a child.

For something of this nature I had indeed been prepared, no less by his letter, than by reminiscences of certain boyish traits, and by conclusions deduced from his peculiar physical conformation and temperament.
