he afternoon. They were very severely treated, and the following is the result, as nearly as I can state it: Missing, believed to be prisoners of war-Col. Lee, Major Revere, Adjutant Pierson, Assistant Surgeon Revere, First Lieut. Geo. B. Perry. Believed to be wounded--First Lieut. Babo, Second Lieut. Wesselhoeff. Wounded in this camp--Capt. Dreher, shot through the head from cheek to cheek; recovery possible. Capt. J. C. Putnam, right arm taken off at socket; doing well. First Lieut. O. W. Holmes, jr., shot through chest from side to side; doing well. Captain Schmidt, shot three times through the leg and through small of the back, from side to side; doing well. First Lieut. J. J. Lowell, shot in leg, not serious. Second Lieut. Putnam was shot in the bowels, and died in this camp yesterday. His body was sent on to Boston this morning. Our loss in killed, wounded, and missing, of non-commissioned officers and privates, is reported at one hundred and forty-seven, of whom for

stensibly diminished. I say ostensibly diminished, for the limitation then placed on the speaker and the power then granted to committees of electing a member to a vacant chairmanship has never again been exercised. On Nov. 6, 1804, the House excused Mr. J. C. Smith, chairman of the committee on claims, from serving thereon, and S. W. Dana, being appointed on the committee in Smith's place, was regarded by a majority of the committee as being its chairman, thus excluding from promotion Mr. Holmes, who was the second person on the original list. Thereupon a new standing rule was submitted as follows: That each of the committees of this House be empowered to appoint a chairman by plurality of votes in all cases where the first-named member of the committee shall be absent, or excused by the House. The committee to whom this motion was referred reported in favor of the motion except that the election should be by a majority of the committee. The House, after debate, refuse
ry same which, thirty years afterwards, I read in some of his congressional speeches; and they were always accurate. I recollect accompanying him to an ecclesiastical council (ex parte) held in the old court-house in Cambridge, to dismiss the Rev. Dr. Holmes. Mr. Hoar of Concord was counsel for the party opposed to Dr. Holmes. We went to hear his argument, in the course of which he quoted the familiar line, Tempora mutantur et nos mutamur in illis. But instead of saying in illis, he said cumDr. Holmes. We went to hear his argument, in the course of which he quoted the familiar line, Tempora mutantur et nos mutamur in illis. But instead of saying in illis, he said cum illis. Sumner was greatly shocked at the mistake, and turning to me said, A man ought to be ashamed of himself who attempts to quote an author, and does not quote correctly. This slight misquotation condemned the scholarship of Mr. Hoar in his estimation; and he had no confidence in his learning afterwards. He was a person of great self-possession, a trait which he inherited from his father, who when high-sheriff of Suffolk County was called upon to read the Riot Act on the stage of the Fede
eakers and resolutions in popular assemblies, the pulpit and the press, in earnest words, declared the public indignation. At a large meeting in Faneuil Hall, Gov. Henry J. Gardner said, We must stand by him who is the representative of Massachusetts, under all circumstances. Peleg W. Chandler remarked that Every drop of blood shed by him in this disgraceful affair has raised up ten thousand armed men. At the dinner of the Massachusetts Medical Society, at the Revere House, Boston, Dr. O. W. Holmes gave this characteristic toast: To the surgeons of the city of Washington. God grant them wisdom! for they are dressing the wounds of a mighty empire, and of uncounted generations. At a great indignation-meeting in Albany, held on the 6th of June, the Rev. Dr. Halley said, We are slaves if we permit these atrocities to go on unchallenged. At a mass-meeting in New-York City, Henry Ward Beecher truly said, Mr. Sumner had no other weapon in his hand than his pen. Ah! gentlemen, her
than one thousand colored citizens, proceeded, through a dense crowd of reverent people, to Mount-Auburn Cemetery. It arrived, just as the sun was setting, at the open grave in the Sumner lot, on Arethusa Path, which winds along the declivity, a little to the westward of the tower. The avenues, the knolls, and hills were crowded with hushed and pensive people. Near the grave stood the Congressional delegation, the surviving members of the class of 1830, H. W. Longfellow, R. W. Emerson, O. W. Holmes, and other intimate friends of the deceased. The Horatian ode, Integer vitoe scelerisque purus, was then sung by fifty male voices, accompanied by trombones; and, at the close, the clergyman pronounced the solemn words, I heard a voice saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: yea, saith the Spirit, that they rest from their labors; and their works do follow them. As the body, in the last beam of fading day, was lowered into the grave, the grand

rsity. Sarah Margaret Fuller, afterward Countess of Ossoli, was quite as distinctly as either Holmes or Lowell the product of Cambridge; whose academic influences, though applied indirectly, were weeding over hill and vale on their bicycles. This was the period when she went to school with Dr. Holmes and overwhelmed him by beginning her first essay with the sentence, It is a trite remark, wher single name, and just as for years every good thing said in Boston was ultimately attributed to Holmes or Motley or Tom Appleton, so one sees to this day phrases credited to Emerson which really belolready spoken of a previous meeting (May 5), when he dined in town with Emerson, Lowell, Motley, Holmes, Cabot, Underwood, and the publisher Phillips, to talk about the new magazine the last wishes to which Underwood speaks, we know that Longfellow, Underwood, and Felton were there, and probably Holmes and Lowell, so that this company also was half or almost half made up of Cantabrigians.

Chapter 3: Holmes It was a favorite theory of Oliver Wendell Holmes that every man's biographyhe room when the patient was propitiated. Dr. Holmes did not remain long in the active practice ottitude during his whole life. In regard to Holmes's intellectual life, it is a rare thing for a lly new career; and this doubtless happened to Holmes on the publication of the Autocrat of the breadingly, before they had begun upon their soup, Holmes burst out with the story. It won immense succ little cruel. If the tables had been turned, Holmes would have laughed it off, instead of growing ared with Lowell's, to an earlier generation. Holmes was still influenced by the school of Pope, wh elms in June. It does not stand recorded how Holmes was affected by Coleridge's Christabel, which t was perhaps partly a result of all this that Holmes was, according to the Quarterly Review, at one bookseller, on being asked if he had any of Dr. Holmes's novels, replied that he had never heard of[19 more...]

veral years afterwards she wrote occasional short stories and articles. In January, 1879, she wrote from Mandarin to Dr. Holmes:-- Dear doctor,--I wish I could give to you and Mrs. Holmes the exquisite charm of this morning. My window is widMrs. Holmes the exquisite charm of this morning. My window is wide open; it is a lovely, fresh, sunny day, and a great orange tree hung with golden balls closes the prospect from my window. The tree is about thirty feet high, and its leaves fairly glisten in the sunshine. I sent Poganuc people to you and Mrs.Mrs. Holmes as being among the few who know those old days. It is an extremely quiet story for these sensational days, when heaven and earth seem to be racked for a thrill; but as I get old I do love to think of those quiet, simple times when there was that way, and yours, too, I trust and believe. Mr. Stowe sends hearty and affectionate remembrance both to you and Mrs. Holmes, and I am, as ever, truly yours, H. B. Stowe. About this time Mrs. Stowe paid a visit to her brother Charles, a
