army of the American Revolution. Holmes and Longfellow both described the place in their poems; and it was into an atmosphere full of such that Longfellow entered when he removed to Cambridge. It ma means. Neither in Holmes nor Lowell nor in Longfellow was there anything of that quality of thrift, nor did they drive creditors to madness. Longfellow regards with amused interest the discovery this pen annually ten thousand dollars, while Longfellow himself says, I wish I had made ten hundred;hole intercourse between Holmes, Lowell, and Longfellow. To those outside their own circle, and espe Lowell had even entered college and before Longfellow had become a Harvard professor, she formed nnvy to exist in any literary circle of which Longfellow was the centre; and the centre of the Cambriand himself criticised the final revision of Longfellow's Dante, with a freedom that was made perfect by the absolute modesty of the author.

Its connection with Cambridge was theref crusade against slavery, and it had been the subject of conferences at intervals with Lowell, Longfellow, and Mrs. Stowe for more than three years. The following letters, both addressed to me,--I wanned at a dinner where fourteen persons were present. This was presumably the dinner of which Longfellow says in his diary (May 20, 1857): Dined in town with the new Magazine Club, discussing title, ither. Assuming that the meeting of May 20th was that of which Underwood speaks, we know that Longfellow, Underwood, and Felton were there, and probably Holmes and Lowell, so that this company also wLowell, 132; T.

a source of fresh life and happiness to him. His course of development was thus somewhat opposite to that of Lowell, who took his radicalism first and in a tolerably undiluted form, becoming afterward more conservative; while the even nature of Longfellow, tempted into no extremes, remained in much the same attitude during his whole life. In regard to Holmes's intellectual life, it is a rare thing for a man nearly fifty years old to strike out a wholly new career; and this doubtless happened he surface at any moment, there was naturally combined a temperament which not only took delight in them but in all the cheerful side of human existence. Comparing the temperaments of these eminent friends, Holmes might be designated as sunny, Longfellow as equable, and Lowell as variable and given to extremes. Holmes had, moreover, fewer domestic sorrows than his two friends, but on the other hand had by reason of his greater longevity the hardest trial of old age, in the sense of finding him

Chapter 5: Lowell of the three authors most widely associated with old Cambridge, only Holmes and Lowell were born there, although its associations became a second nature to Longfellow, who was born in Maine, while that region was still a part of Massachusetts. Lowell felt, even more thoroughly than Holmes, the influence of his Cambridge surroundings, because Holmes went to Europe for his medical training (1833) at the age of twenty-three and never afterward lived in his native town, th, Judge Joseph Lee, Captain George Ruggles (afterward Thomas Fayerweather), and Lieutenant Thomas Oliver.

The surface upon which the buildings stand is about twenty-five feet above the level of the river, and sufficiently distant from its bank. It is well raised above the crown of Mount Auburn Street. It has a water front of 500 feet. On the opposite side of the river is a park or meadow of seventy acres, given by Professor Longfellow and others to Harvard College to be held by the grantees as marshes, meadows, gardens, public walks, or ornamental grounds, or as the site of college buildings not inconsistent with these uses. Facing the south, the wards have the full influence of the sun, and a free course for the very desirable southwestern breezes of summer. The river front effectually prevents all dust from that quarter. In process of time the number of wards must be increased, and for this purpose all the nin

all my little property was in his hands ; and if I had ever so small a sum, even tell dollars, for which I had no immediate use, he put it on interest, though it were but for a single month. But the loss in this point of view seems trifling compared to the desolation his death has made in my affections. If I could only hear his gentle voice again, I would be willing to throw all the dollars into the sea. Oh, this dreadful silence! How heavily the dark veil drops clown between us and that unknown world! Whether it be the vividness of memory, or whether he is actually near me, I know not,--but I have the impression of the perpetual presence of his spirit with singular distinctness. The presence, be it real or imaginary, has the same influence over me that he always had while on earth. It soothes me, makes me feel calm and strong. I think your friend Samuel Johnson wrote the best hymn for the occasion I ever read. I mean the one he wrote for Mr. Longfellow. Blessings be with you.

cared for the exclusion you threaten, I should at least have the consolation of being exiled with honorable company. Dr. Channing's writings, mild and candid as they are, breathe what you would call arrant treason. William C. Bryant, in his capacity of editor, is openly on our side. The inspired muse of Whittier has incessantly sounded the trumpet for moral warfare with your iniquitous institution ; and his stirring tones have been answered, more or less loudly, by Pierpont, Lowell, and Longfellow. Emerson, the Plato of America, leaves the scholastic seclusion he loves so well, and, disliking noise with all his poetic soul, bravely takes his stand among the trumpeters. George W. Curtis, the brilliant writer, the eloquent lecturer, the elegant man of the world, lays the wealth of his talent on the altar of Freedom, and makes common cause with rough-shod reformers. The genius of Mrs. Stowe carried the outworks of your institution at one dash, and left the citadel open to besieger
