Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Carlyle's laugh and other surprises, Note (search)
rinted by permission from a work called Book and heart, by Thomas Wentworth Higginson, copyright, 1897, by Harper and Brothers, with whose consent the essay entitled One of Thackeray's women also is published. Leave has been obtained to reprint the papers on Brown, Cooper, and Thoreau, from Carpenter's American prose, copyrighted by the Macmillan Company, 1898. My thanks are also due to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences for permission to reprint the papers on Scudder, Atkinson, and Cabot; to the proprietors of Putnam's magazine for the paper entitled Emerson's foot-note person ; to the proprietors of the New York Evening post for the article on George Bancroft from The nation ; to the editor of the Harvard graduates' magazine for the paper on Gottingen and Harvard ; and to the editors of the Outlook for the papers on Charles Eliot Norton, Julia Ward Howe, Edward Everett Hale, William J. Rolfe, and Old Newport days. Most of the remaining sketches appeared originally in the A

and high-minded man, the Rev. Samuel J. May, and placing himself at last in the still more favored position of Emerson's foot-note. When that took place, it suddenly made itself clear to the whole Concord circle that there was not one among them so serene, so equable, so dreamy, yet so constitutionally a leader, as this wandering child of the desert. Of all the men known in New England, he seemed the one least likely to have been a country peddler. Mr. Alcott first visited Concord, as Mr. Cabot's memoir of Emerson tells us, in 1835, and in 1840 came there to live. But it was as early as May 19, 1837, that Emerson wrote to Margaret Fuller: Mr. Alcott is the great man His book [Conversations on the Gospels] does him no justice, and I do not like to see it. . . But he has more of the Godlike than any man I have ever seen and his presence rebukes and threatens and raises. He is a teacher. . .. If he cannot make intelligent men feel the presence of a superior nature, the worse for t

James Elliot Cabot Our late associate, Elliot Cabot, of whom I have been appointed to write a sble disadvantage as the evening went on. Elliot Cabot entered Harvard College in 1836 as Freshman This taste was strengthened by the example of Cabot's elder brother, afterwards Dr. Samuel Cabot, y again removed, this time to Gottingen, where Cabot busied himself with the study of Kant, and alsspent many evenings at students' festivals. Cabot sums up his whole European reminiscences as fois Edward Parker, who, being a born lawyer, as Cabot was not, found it for his own profit to sever the partnership at the end of a year, while Cabot retired from the profession forever. His German p to Lake Superior with Agassiz, in 1850, when Cabot acted as secretary and wrote and illustrated tsuch strong helpmates to their husbands. Of Mrs. Cabot it might almost have been said, as was said the 44th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry. Elliot Cabot himself enlisted in a drill club, and did s[13 more...]

believing in the loving fatherhood. Maud writes me that she suffers an irreparable loss in dear David's death ... Your loving Mother. Much work was on hand this summer: a poem for Old Home Week in Boston, another for the Cooperstown Centennial, a paper on the Elegant literature of fifty years since, one for the Delineator on The three greatest men I have known. These were Ralph Waldo Emerson, Theodore Parker, and Dr. Howe. She spent much time and pains on this article. She read Elliot Cabot's Life of Emerson, which she thought certainly a good piece of work, but deficient, it seems to me, in the romantic sympathy which is the true interpretation of Emerson and of all his kind. She hammered hard on the two poems, with good results. July 14. I can hardly believe it, but my miserable verses, re-read to-day, seemed quite possible, if I can have grace to fill out their sketchiness. Last word tonight: I think I have got a poem.
