den, S. C., Nov. 27, 1827; graduated at Brown University in 1850, and at Andover Theological Seminary in 1854. Soon afterwards he became pastor of the Congregational Church in Peabody, Mass., where he remained till 1861. He was then called to the pastorate of the Prospect Street Church in Cambridgeport, which he left in 1865 to become associate pastor with the Rev. Dr. Spring, in the Brick Presbyterian Church in New York. In 1873 he succeeded to this pastorate; in 1874 accepted the Professorship of Belles-Lettres, and English Language and Literature in the Princeton University; and in 1886 became the first dean of the faculty of Princeton. His works include Life of Francis Wayland; George Ide Chace: a Memorial; Introduction, with bibliography, to Cowper's poetical works; William Gammell: a biographical sketch, with selections from his writings; Lectures on English Literature; and The sacrifice of praise, a compilation of church hymns. He died in Princeton, N. J., March 27, 1899.
Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Sewall, Jonathan 1728- (search)
Sewall, Jonathan 1728- Lawyer; born in Boston, Mass., Aug. 24. 1728: graduated at Harvard College in 1748, and in early life was the intimate associate and friend of John Adams. Like Adams, he was a school-teacher; became a lawyer in 1767; and was appointed attorney-general of Massachusetts. In 1769 he began a suit for the freedom of a negro slave, and was successful, two years before the settlement of the case of the negro Somerset, which Blackstone commended so highly, and Cowper commemorated in poetry. He and Adams finally differed in politics, Sewall taking sides with the crown. When the Revolutionary War broke out, he was residing in the house, at Cambridge, which Washington afterwards occupied as his headquarters, for Sewall went to England, and was among the proscribed in Massachusetts in 1779. In 1788 he removed to St. John, N. B., where he was judge of the admiralty court until his death, Sept. 26, 1796.

y thousands of Americans in their great cities. But there are two other memorials which combine with these to give to this spot in the abbey the name of Little poets' corner. They are the stainedglass windows in memory of George Herbert and William Cowper. They belong entirely to America, for they are the gift of an American citizen, my honored friend, Mr. George W. Childs, of Philadelphia. In the stained glass are the effigies of the two poets. Both of them were Westminster boys, and the most beautiful representatives of all that is holy in two very opposite schools of religious thought. It was a happy inspiration which suggested the erection of this window. George Herbert and William Cowper were well deserving of memorials in the abbey, apart from the fact that they had so often played in its cloisters and worshipped in its choir. The combination of the two suggests the higher unity which reconciles all minor points of ecclesiastical difference. Leaving the baptistery, and

Thomas Wentworth Higginson, John Greenleaf Whittier, Chapter 9: Whittier at home (search)
his home life is that drawn by Hayne, the Southern poet, who once visited him. So 'neath the Quaker poet's tranquil roof, From all deep discords of the world aloof, I sit once more and measured converse hold, With him whose nobler thoughts are rhythmic gold; See his deep brows half-puckered in a knot, O'er some hard problem of our mortal lot, Or a dream soft as May winds of the south, Waft a girl's sweetness 'round his firm, set mouth. Or, should he deem wrong threats the public weal, Lo, the whole man seems girt with flashing steel; His glance a sword-thrust and his words of ire, Like thunder tones from some old prophet's lyre. Or by the hearthstone, when the day is done, Mark swiftly lanced a sudden shaft of fun; The short quick laugh, the smartly smitten knees, Are all sure tokens of a mind at ease. God's innocent pensioners in the woodland dim, The fields, the pastures, know and trust in him, And in their love, his lonely heart is blest, Our pure hale-minded Cowper of the West.
Thomas Wentworth Higginson, John Greenleaf Whittier, Chapter 12: Whittier the poet (search)
ought of some portions of the book may be considered beyond the comprehension of the class for which it is intended. Admitting that there may be truth in the objection, I believe, with Coventry Patmore in his preface to a child's book, that the charm of such a volume is increased rather than lessened by the surmised existence of an unknown element of power, meaning, and beauty. I well remember how, at a very early age, the solemn organ-roll of Gray's Elegy and the lyric sweep and pathos of Cowper's Lament for the Royal George moved and fascinated me with a sense of mystery and power felt rather than understood. A spirit passed before my face, but the form thereof was not discerned. Freighted with unguessed meanings, these poems spake to me, in an unknown tongue, indeed, but like the wind in the pines or the waves on the beach, awakening faint echoes and responses, and vaguely prophesying of wonders yet to be revealed. He was the Tyrtaeus or leading bard of the greatest moral
