house, with windows on only two sides, is not like a handsome suburban residence. Longfellow could look across the Cambridge marshes and see the sunsets reflected in the water of the Charles River. Here he lived from 1843, when he married Miss Appleton, a daughter of one of the wealthiest merchant-bankers of Boston, until his death by pneumonia in March, 1882. The situation seemed suited to him, and he always remained a true poet and devoted to the muses: Integer vitae scelerisque purus. nts, and hold the water until it could be made useful. He wished that the Alpine Club would take an interest in the matter. After enjoying so much in Switzerland it would be only fair for them to do something for the benefit of the country. Mr. Appleton then said: That is a work for government to do; to which Ruskini replied: Governments do nothing but fill their pockets, and issue this, --taking out a handful of Italian paper currency, which was then much below par.

to the incisions representing pupils in the eyes, which he said were a late introduction in sculpture, and not generally considered an improvement. After this Mr. Appleton called to us to come with him to the studio of an English painter in the same building, whose name I cannot now recollect. He was the type of a graceful, animreturning to the street we looked into Mr. Story's outer room again, where the casts of all his statues were seated in a double row like persons at a theatre.

The faults of men, she said, are chiefly those of strength, but the faults of my own sex arise from weakness. I happened to refer to Mr. Appleton's bust of Aurelius, and she said she was surprised he had purchased it, for it did not seem to her a satisfactory copy; a conclusion that I had been slowly com

y, when George William Curtis, his companion, pointed out to him the cenotaph of Brooks, which he had not before observed.—He stood silent before it for a few moments, and then turning away, said, Poor fellow, poor fellow! Curtis then asked him, How did you feel about Brooks? His reply was, Only as to a brick that should fall upon my head from a chimney. He was the unconscious agent of a malign power. Mr. Curtis gave a part of the above in Harper's Monthly, June, 1874 ( Editor's Easy Chair ), and the remainder in conversation with the writer. See also his sketch of Sumner in Appleton's Cyclopaedia of American Biography. Longfellow, at whose house Sumner was the day after Brooks's death, wrote in his journal: Sumner came out. His assailant Brooks has died suddenly at Washington. I do not think Sumner had any personal feeling against him. He looked upon him as a mere tool of the slaveholders, or, at all events, of the South Carolinians. It was their way of answering arguments

, and pupils soon came in. Then followed for several years what was at least a very happy family. The school was to be in many respects on the German plan: farm life, friendly companionship, ten-mile rambles through the woods with the teachers, and an annual walking tour in the same company. All instruction was to be thorough; there was to be no direct emulation, and no flogging. There remain good delineations of the school in the memoirs of Dr. Cogswell, and in a paper by the late T. G. Appleton, one of the pupils. It is also described by Duke Bernard of Saxe-Weimar in his Travels. The material of the school was certainly fortunate. Many men afterwards noted in various ways had their early training there: J. L. Motley, H. W. Bellows, R. T. S. Lowell, F. Schroeder, Ellery Channing, G. E. Ellis, Theodore Sedgwick, George C. Shattuck, S. G. Ward, R. G. Shaw, N. B. Shurtleff, George Gibbs, Philip Kearney, R. G. Harper. At a dinner given to Dr. Cogswell in 1864, the most profuse

is last days. Having been away from Cambridge all summer, I did not know that he had been at Cambridge or ill, and on my writing to him received this cheerful and serene answer, wholly illustrative of the man, although the very fact that it was dictated was sadly ominous:-- Shady Hill, Cambridge, Mass., 6 October, 1908. My dear Higginson,--Your letter the other day from Ipswich gave me great pleasure. ... It had never occurred to me that you were associated with Ipswich through your Appleton relatives. My association with the old town, whose charm has not wholly disappeared under the hard hoof of the invader, begins still earlier than yours, for the William Norton who landed there in 1636 was my direct ancestor; and a considerable part of his pretty love story seems to have been transacted there. I did not know the story until I came upon it by accident, imbedded in some of the volumes of the multifarious publications of our historical society. It amused me to find that John
