king care to start some ingenious or useful topic for discourse, which might tend to improve the minds of his children. Benjamin's formal schooling was begun when he was eight years old and abandoned, together with the design of making him a clergymn Boston as a printer, and proceeded to the publication of The Boston gazette, 1719, and The New England Courant, 1721. Benjamin, aged twelve, became his apprentice. It can hardly be too much emphasized that this was really an inspiring job. It ma signed Silence Dogood, which appeared fortnightly in The New England Courant from March to October, 1722. In this year Benjamin was in charge of the Courant during his brother's imprisonment for printing matter offensive to the Assembly; and when, is journal, it was continued in the name of the apprentice. In this situation James became jealous and overbearing, and Benjamin became insubordinate. When it grew evident that there was not room enough in Boston for them both, the younger brother

e the famous governor of New Jersey, expressed his ideal of existence in a direct imitation of Pomfret which he called Philosophic solitude, or the choice of a rural life. Ten years later a second imitation of Pomfret followed in The choice by Dr. Benjamin Church of Boston, who longs for a home in the country, the right kind of wife, congenial friends, and leisure to read his favourite poets-Milton, Dryden, Gay, awful Pope, unequalled bard, and nature-limning Thomson. Though dwelling in a smallof Gifford, and of Peter Pindar bred in America songs, mock-heroics, burlesques, and satires of direct attack, in lyric measures, heroic couplets, and octosyllabics. American political satire began with the Stamp Act. The Times (1765) by the Rev. Benjamin Church of Boston, which vigorously defends the colonists, imitates Churchill, who for four years had been famous in England as the most relentless satirist of the day, and is doubly interesting in that its author later changed his attitude

32). Save for the lively satire of the Little genius essays and a delicious travesty of Mrs. Trollope, there is little of other than historical interest in Fay's pictures of New York life. Distinctly in better form are the Crayon sketches by William Cox, an English printer once in the employ of The Mirror. In his fondness for the theatre, his devotion to Scott, and his love of old English scenes and customs, Cox had much in common with Irving. Here too should be mentioned the editors, Park Benjamin of The American Monthly magazine and Brother Jonathan, poet and miscellaneous writer; Lewis Gaylord Clark of The Knickerbocker magazine; and his twin brother, Willis Gaylord Clark, a Philadelphia journalist whose Ollapodiana papers inherited something of Lamb and anticipated something of Holmes. See also Book II, Chap. XX. Flashes of cleverness, geniality, and quiet humour, however, could not conceal the lack of originality and barrenness of invention that were becoming more and
