Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Olde Cambridge, Chapter 4: Longfellow (search)
a students' boarding-house. Here he formed an intimacy with Professor Felton, heartiest of Greek professors, as Dickens called him; and the circle was often enlarged by the society of Charles Sumner, then librarian of the Law School; of George Stillman Hillard, then a young lawyer; and of Henry Russell Cleveland, an eminent scholar and teacher, then residing at Pine Bank on Jamaica Pond. These five were known among themselves as the Five of Clubs; and came to be known by a too censorious pubnstant record of visitors more or less transient. This was especially true after his second marriage; before this in 1838 he writes that he dines at five or six, generally in Boston. He then continues, In the evening I walk on the Common with Hillard, or alone; then go back to Cambridge on foot. If not very late, I sit an hour with Felton or Sparks. For nearly two years I have not studied at night, save now and then. Most of the time am alone; smoke a good deal; wear a broad-brimmed black

you get pay for your frolic last winter? However, laissez-aller. It is a new year. Love to all. Yours always, G. T. To Charles S. Daveis, Portland. Boston, May 12, 1840. Guizot's essay on the character of Washington is admirable, and Hillard has done justice to it in the translation. As soon as it is out I pray you to read it, and cause it to be read in your purlieus. It is a salutary document, and as beautiful as it is salutary; full of statesmanlike wisdom, and with an extraordhty an illustration of it, at the same time, as could be asked for. To Hugh S. Legare. Boston, June 16, 1841. Mr. Dear Legare,—Your letter came last Saturday morning, and the same day there dined with me Allston, Prescott, Longfellow, and Hillard, the editor of Spenser. You ought to have been there, for we had a good time, wholly extempore, by accidental coming together, and it is the last gathering under my roof-tree, till the cool weather and longer evenings make such things worth whi

All the storm that had been so threatening was blown off, and nothing remained but the steady power to give movement to the machinery of the State. So it will be now. To George S. Hillard. July 17, 1848. My dear Hillard,—I have your note from London, and thank you very sincerely for it. Its views are discouraging enough, but not more so, I fear, than are true, though I do not agree to all its conclusions. As to the pr

Preface to the Fourth Edition, by G. S. Hillard. This edition, prepared for the press by Mr. Hillard, appeared a year after the death of Mr. Ticknor, who left a special request that his friend might perform this office.

He has already gone with the ladies and Hillard in a boat to the other side of the lake, where they spend the forenoon in those cool woods, with book, and work, and healthful play. I seldom join in these excurt enough of myself. We are all well, wife and daughters, and all send you our love, and ask for yours in return, despatched under your own hand. If anybody like Hillard were going to London, I should charge him with an especial commission to see you, and bring it back to us. But such ambassadors are rare, and I do not send less t, etc. You know who are the persons I need to hear about. It is those you like; but chiefly yourself.

I had it, and enjoyed it very much for two hours. Tell Hillard that he agrees with us exactly about the present position of affairs in America, and understands them better than anybody I have seen since I came from home. After I came home, we had a visit from Tocqueville, as agreeable as ever. Then I drcan; for Tocqueville came in after dinner, and we all changed language at once, At a still later period of his life, when Mr. Ticknor's French might have been supposed to have lost some of its freshness, a French lady of cultivation said to Mr. Hillard, Monsieur Ticknor parle Francais delicieusement. except the Master, who evidently has but one tongue in his head, and needs but one, considering the strong use he makes of it . . . .

r-club was formed, limited to twelve members, and allowing only twelve persons to sit round its board. It need hardly be said that the party, in favor of which Mr. Ticknor made such an exception to his usual habits, was made up of his personal friends, and of men whose conversation rendered their meetings interesting and stimulating. The original members of this club were Professor Agassiz, Mr. W. Amory, Mr. Sidney Bartlett, Hon. B. R. Curtis, Mr. C. C. Felton, Mr. W. W. Greenough, Mr. G. S. Hillard, Mr. R. M. Mason, Professor W. B. Rogers, Mr. C. W. Storey, and Mr. H. P. Sturgis. Mr. Ticknor joined it in 1861. Mr. Ticknor continued a member of this club until 1868, when he resigned on the ground of age. Mr. Ticknor's duties and interests in connection with the Zoological Museum at Cambridge, to which, for the sake of his friend Agassiz, he sincerely devoted himself, and the relations he still held to the Public Library, occupied him in congenial ways, but even here the excitem
