and how much I have to do, you won't think very badly of me. We have four recitations a week in Latin, of an hour each, four in Greek, three in rhetoric, three in German, three in French, and two in history, with a written exercise in Latin or Greek every week and one in German, besides a theme every fortnight. The classical lessGerman, besides a theme every fortnight. The classical lessons are long enough to satisfy the most desirous of getting ahead. Thus you see we are constantly enough occupied. The faculty work us so that we may have no time for mischief --and they seem to have hit on the right plan — the college was never quieter. I suppose you are busy rejoicing over Whig victories, and looking forwars and no privileged members. Everybody was to work, everybody was to receive wages, and everybody was to pay for what he got. Dana was engaged to teach Greek and German, or anything else within his capacity, and to work on the farm. With the proceeds of his teaching and of his wages for farm labor he was to pay for his living.

pathy with the movement from the time he first began to understand its tendencies, and in order to inform himself at the fountain-head of its doctrines as set forth in the speculations of Kant, Spinoza, and Schelling, he early began the study of German; and by the time he left college had sufficiently mastered that language to regard himself as competent to teach it. Many years afterwards, during the war between the States, as Major-General Carl Schurz, Mr. Dana, and I were riding from Knoxvillrage those who had practical charge of the management. Dana, in whom we are principally interested, went sturdily about his daily task. When scholars began to come to the institute, he taught, and taught well, whether the lessons were in Greek, German, or Spanish. When he had no scholars, he worked on the farm at whatever came handiest, but seems to have preferred feeding and milking the cows and looking after the dairy. When neither of these departments claimed his attention, he wrote for t

It must have been early in 1848-as he was in Europe during the last half of that year — that he translated and published a small volume of German Stories and Legends for children, under the title of The Black Ant.

h his aptitudes and tastes, gave special direction to his life-work and his career. Blessed with an extraordinary memory, his wide reading gave him at an early age an encyclopedic knowledge of both ancient and modern literature. He was not only familiar with the classics, but with all the great works of the German, French, Spanish, and Italian authors. For a time, at least, poetry was his special delight, and he knew the songs of Provence and the Romance tongues, as well as the Sagas, Low German, Scandinavian, and the plays of Ibsen. For years Dana's chief form of intellectual entertainment was to gather a half-dozen friends-generally young and uninstructed, but occasionally a matured student, who could help on the rest — about him once or twice a week, and read with them some important book in a foreign tongue.
