Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Margaret Fuller Ossoli, Chapter 3: Girlhood at Cambridge. (1810-1833.) (search)
the men who made Cambridge what it was, between 1810 and 1830, to show that my claim for the little town is not too high. Judge Story, whose reputation is still very wide, was then the head of the law school, and in the zenith of his fame; the all-accomplished Edward Everett was Greek professor; English was taught by Edward T. Channing, who certainly trained more and better authors than any teacher yet known in America; George Ticknor was organizing the department of modern languages; George Bancroft was a tutor. The town in which these men lived and taught may have been provincial in population, but it was intellectually metropolitan; where McGregor sits, there is the head of the table. Moreover, by a happy chance, the revolutions of Europe were sending to this country, about that time, many highly cultivated Germans and Italians, of whom Harvard College had its full share. Charles Follen taught German; Charles Beck, Latin; Pietro Bachi, Italian; Friedrich Grater gave drawing le

and this newspaper communication was called forth by something written by George Bancroft. In a letter to Dr. Hedge (March 6, 1835), she thus describes the occurrence:-- Your ci-devant tutor, Mr. Bancroft, has been delivering a curious (as we say in Groton) address at Deerfield. If I thought you would care for it I wouldep it in mind and furnish it for my memoirs as such after I am dead. Ms. Mr. Bancroft's paper on Slavery in Rome appeared in the North American Review for Octobernication in small print, signed J. and filling nearly a column. It handled Mr. Bancroft firmly though respectfully, but disputed his view in regard to Brutus, and sggests a woman's pen is the delicate adroitness with which she turns against Mr. Bancroft, in closing, two lines from one of his own juvenile effusions:-- Was it ft a name Bright with the beams of freedom's holiest flame? A few days later, Mr. Bancroft found a defender, as Miss Fuller indicates, in a correspondent signing H., a

the end, Let not thy native courage bend; Strive on, Leila, day by day, Though bleeding feet stain all the way; Do men reject thee and despise-- An angel in thy bosom lies And to thy death its birth replies. Ms. Diary, 1844. These were her days of thought and exaltation. Other days were given to society, usually in Boston, where she sometimes took a room for the winter. Hawthorne, in his American-note books, records, under the date, November, 1840:-- I was invited to dine at Mr. Bancroft's yesterday with Miss Margaret Fuller; but Providence had given me some business to do, for which I was very thankful. American note-books, i. 221. It must be remembered that Hawthorne was always grateful for any dispensation which saved him from a formal dinner-party. That he enjoyed a conversation with Margaret Fuller personally is plain from an entry in his American note-books, describing an interview between them during one of her visits to Concord:-- August 22, 1842.

y enthusiasm; Ripley, the active understanding; Bartol, the flame of aspiration; Alcott, the pure idealism; Emerson, the lumen siccum, or dry light. Among members or occasional guests were Thoreau, Jones Very, George P. Bradford, Dr. Le Baron Russell, and a few young theological students from Cambridge, such as William D. Wilson, now professor at Cornell University, and Robert Bartlett, whose Harvard Master of Arts oration has been already quoted. Once, and once only, Dr. Channing and George Bancroft seem to have met with them at Mr. Ripley's (December 5, 1839). The project of a magazine, long pending, seems to have been brought to a crisis by the existence of an English periodical, which was at the time thought so good as to be almost a model for the American enterprise; but which seems, on rereading it in the perspective of forty years, to be quite unworthy of the comparison. There was in England a man named John A. Heraud, author of a Life of Savonarola, and described in one
