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 indeed running dry when Nathaniel Parker Willis (1806-61) burst into prom

A clever book, hustling with action, is Novellettes of a traveller, or, Odds and ends from the Knapsack of Thomas Singularity, journeyman printer (1834), which was written by Henry Junius Nott (1797-1837), of South Carolina, distinguished at the bar for his learning and afterwards as professor of belles-lettres. The Ollapodiana papers, in the style of a more boisterous Lamb, were contributed to The Knickerbocker magazine See also Book II, Chaps. III and XX. by Willis Gaylord Clark (1810-41), whose twin brother, Lewis Gaylord Clark (d. 1873), for a long time editor of the Knickerbocker, was an accomplished journalist and humorist of the chatting sort. The Motley Book (1838) was a collection of original sketches and tales by Cornelius Mathews (1817-89), a versatile poet, dramatist, and journalist who was very prolific during the forties and whose Career of Puffer Hopkins (1841) is one of the most interesting of minor American political satires.

ep the lesson thrills When sinks the sun, and twilight shadows fall From their umbrageous woods on the white tomb, Where with his loved ones the pale mourner looks,-- Ere long himself to lie. Farewell, dear scene. “Pleasant thoa mournful,” thou Hast touched my heart as by a master-spell, Making it sweet to weep, and sweet to know, That in a land so fair I first drew breath, And gazed on thy bright landscape, gaining thence Deep sense of all things beautiful and good.

The sun looketh forth from the halls of the morning, And flushes the clouds that begirt his career; He wel<
