In even the description of June he finds some of these discords and gives absolute praise only to the description of the brook. His criticism on the measure of the poem is only the natural revolt of what he calls the old square-toed heroic against the rattlety-bang sort of verse which came in with Coleridge's Christabel.

W, Griswold, p. 257. it would appear that he was in charge of it in January, 1850, which must have been about the time of this letter. There is not, I think, in all Mr. Norton's delightful collection of Lowell's correspondence anything quite so thoroughly local, or giving so close a glimpse of Old Cambridge. The editor's preface is as follows:-- A
