Victor of Antietam,
oices whispered down; Along his task-field weird processions swept, The visionary pomp of stately phantoms stepped.
The uncertainty of an author's judgment of his own books was never better illustrated than by the fact that Whittier's poem Mabel Martin first published under the name of The witch's daughter in the National Era for 1857-erroneously described by Mr. Pickard as first published in 1866--was his greatest immediate financial success.
It was somewhat enlarged as Mabel Martin in 187Mabel Martin in 1877, and he received for it $1000 at the first annual payment.
Mr. Pickard pronounces it charming, but I suspect that it is rarely copied, and hardly ever quoted — perhaps because the threeline measure is unfavourable to Whittier's style or to the public tastes.
The absence of rhyme from one line in each three-line verse is not compensated by any advantage, while the four-line verse of the dedication of the whole work to the memory of his mother is very attractive.

A harvest idyl.
Susanna Martin, an aged woman of Amesbury, Mass., was tried and executed for the alleged crime of witchcraft.
Her home was in what is now known as Pleasant Valley on the Merrimac, a little above the old Ferry way, where,ld, Recalling pastoral Ruth in her Who waited, blushing and demure, The red-ear's kiss of forfeiture.
The Witchs daughter. But still the sweetest voice was mute That river-valley ever heard From lips of maid or throat of bird; For Mabel Martin sat apart, And let the hay-mow's shadow fall Upon the loveliest face of all.
