ary tendencies of Cambridge, and his two volumes of lectures still surprise the reader by their good sense and judgment. Levi Hedge, about the same time (18 10), became Professor of Logic and Metaphysics, and he furnished what was for many years the standard American textbook on the former subject.

The European letters of previous American student-travellers, and especially those of Ticknor, Everett, and Cogswell, as lately published in the Harvard Graduates' Magazine, September, 1897. show what a new world then opened upon young American students in Europe. Longfellow journeyed in Spain with Lieutenant Alexander Slidell (afterward Mackeighborhood of Boston by the repetition at Harvard College, in 1833, of the poem delivered by him in the previous autumn before the Bowdoin Chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa. At Cambridge the poem was, for some reason, given first in order, and Edward Everett, the orator, afterward announced that his subject also was Education, and that he was but a follower in the field where the flashing sickle had already passed.
