William Alexander Linn, Horace Greeley Founder and Editor of The New York Tribune, Chapter 3: Thurlow Weed's discovery-the Jeffersonian and the Log Cabin (search)
rly letters to Weed: I think you take the wrong view of the political bearing of this matter, though I act without reference to that (the italics are his), and Weed was powerless to repress Greeley's advocacy of what he considered vagaries in the Tribune. Weed says that he found Greeley in the early years of their acquaintance, when they were most intimate, unselfish, conscientious, public-spirited, and patriotic. He had no habits or taste but for work-steady, indomitable work. Lewis Gaylord Clark, in the Knickerbocker, said of Greeley: A man careless, it may be, of the style of his dress, preferring comfort to fashion, but yet of scrupulous cleanliness in person and habiliments always; possessing a benevolent heart, and clothed with charity as with a garment ; frank and fearless in the expression of his opinions, whether such opinions are to be praised or execrated; of infatigable industry, and unpretending, kindly manners-this is Horace Greeley.

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 more apparent among the remoter satellites of Geoffrey Crayon. The stream of discursive literature was

The Knickerbocker Gallery, an elaborate gift book published for the benefit of the editor in 1855, and made up of brief poems and essays donated by contributors to the magazine, contained pieces by Washington Irving, William Cullen B

most important is The Editor's Easy Chair. George William Curtis assumed control of this in 1853, and his essays which appeared under this head are among the most delightful of his works. The most distinguished of Curtis's successors in the Easy Chair is its present occupant, William Dean Howells. Another department, The Editor's Study, has been conducted at different times by William Dean Howells and Charles Dudley Warner. Among the men in charge of The Editor's Drawer have been Lewis Gaylord Clark and John Kendrick Bangs. The early numbers of Harper's monthly each contained a few woodcuts, many of them portraits. The proprietors soon began to pay greater attention to illustration, and in 1856 started an engraving department of their own. Among well-known artists who have been upon the staff are C. S. Reinhart, E. A. Abbey, and A. B. Frost, while many others were frequent contributors of pictures. While Harper's magazine may well claim to be the pioneer among high-class ill
