ce to the combined manly and womanly qualities of Norton spoke for itself, and won applause even before the place of residence was uttered; and I received from Norton this recognition of the little tribute:-- Ashfield, 2 July, 1904. My dear Higginson,--Your friendly words about me in your Phi Beta poem give me so much pleasure that I cannot refrain from thanking you for them. I care for them specially as a memorial of our hereditary friendship. They bring to mind my Mother's affection for at Cambridge or ill, and on my writing to him received this cheerful and serene answer, wholly illustrative of the man, although the very fact that it was dictated was sadly ominous:-- Shady Hill, Cambridge, Mass., 6 October, 1908. My dear Higginson,--Your letter the other day from Ipswich gave me great pleasure. ... It had never occurred to me that you were associated with Ipswich through your Appleton relatives. My association with the old town, whose charm has not wholly disappeared

ou, I am, Always truly yrs., E. C. Stedman. This must have been answered by some further expression of solicitude, for this reply came, two months later,-- University Club, 370 Fifth Avenue, New York, Sunday, Sept. 16, 1883. My dear Higginson,--There is a good deal, say what you will, in moral support. I have proved it during the last few weeks: 't would have been hard to get through with them, but for just such words as yours. And I have had them in such abundance that, despite rforeground the literary work whose assuaging influence only one who has participated in it can understand. Then came another blow in the death of his mother, announced to me as follows:-- 44 East 26th St., New York, Dec. 8th, 1889. My dear Higginson,--Yes: I have been through a kind of Holy Week, and have come out in so incorporeal a state that I strive painfully, though most gratefully, to render thanks to some, at least, of my beautiful mother's friends and mine who have taken note of he

ways be seen in his letters. The following was written in his own hurried handwriting in recognition of his seventy-seventh birthday :-- April 8, 1899. Dear Higginson,--Thanks for your card. It awaited me on my return from North Carolina last night. Three score & ten as you know, has many advantages,--and as yet, I find noer was called out by the death of Major-General Rufus Saxton, distinguished for his first arming of the freed slaves-- Washington, D. C., Feb. 29, 1908. Dear Higginson,--I have been reading with the greatest interest your article on Gen. Saxton. It has reminded me of an incident here — the time of which I cannot place. But pure nonsense in which his impetuous nature delighted. This was on occasion of his joining the Boston Authors' Club:-- Roxbury, Mass., April 10, 1903. Dear Higginson,--One sometimes does what there is no need of doing. What we call here a Duke of Northumberland day is a day when one does what he darn chooses to do, without r
