In this autumn she was elected a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and in December she wrote for its first meeting a poem called The Capitol. She greatly desired to read this poem before the association, and Maud, albeit with many misgivings, agreed to take her on to Washington. This was not to be. On learning of her intention, three officers of the association, William Dean Howells, Robert Underwood Johnson, and Thomas Nelson Page, sent her a round-robin telegram, begging her not to run the risk of the long winter journey. The kindly suggestion was not altogether well taken. Ha! she flashed out. They think I am too old, but there's a little ginger left in the old blue jar! She soon realized the wisdom as well as the friendliness of the round robin, and confided to the Journal that she had been in two minds about it. On Christmas Day she writes:-- Thanks to God who gave us t
