Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Letters and Journals of Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Chapter 2: the Worcester period (search)
pt for Holmes, who was really very agreeable and even delightful, far more so than James Lowell, the other principal interlocutor, who was bright and witty as always, but dogmatic and impatient of contradiction more than he used to be, though he always had that tendency; whereas Holmes was very genial and sweet and allowed Lowell to be almost rude to him. The other guests were Edmund Quincy, Dr. J. W. Palmer (author of your favorite Miss Wimple), Charles W. Storey (a lazy, witty lawyer), Charles Norton, Underwood, John Wyman, formerly of Worcester, and myself. ...

Holmes said some things that were as eloquent as anything in the Autocrat about the absurdity of studying doctrines in books and supposing that we got much from that source, when each person is the net result of a myriad influences from all nature and society which mould

Charles Norton said of the Reminiscences that he did not think Froude loved Carlyle, or he could not have done anything so cruel. I think you will be surprised at the self-restraint and good taste of Norton's notes to the Emerson-Carlyle Correspondence. For a man so set in his opinions, I think this quite remarkable. We who are complaining of the aftermath of war, so soon after it has actually ceased, may read with surprise this remark of Charles Francis Adams, nearly twenty years after the clcted by a magazine (Scudder in the Atlantic ), and yet it has been more praised by many than anything I ever did — including very cool critics such as Lowell and Norton. This description of a summer in Plymouth, New Hampshire, was found in the journal of 1880: Our chief drives were over the mountain roads and the greates

the Genuineness of the Gospels (3 vols.). Charles Norton made further visits to Europe in 1855-57, on tracing the list of papers catalogued under Norton's name in the Atlantic Index. To appreciatereach the kingdom of heaven in his own way, Norton never wrote about himself, if it could be avoiEngland again — in this loving gradation, Dear Norton, My dearest Norton, My dear Charles, and My det illustration of the essential Americanism of Norton's career.

Norton affords in this respect a great contrast to hi it was always found attractive, not merely by Norton, but by Agassiz and Longfellow, neither of whoone. This security belonged for many years to Norton, until the needs of a growing family made him r the immense zest and satisfaction with which Norton edited a hitherto unknown manuscript of the po[17 more...]

ttery, and at the time when the gallant Gen. Francis S. Bartow fell. From other sources, and principally from the wounded now in our city, Mr. Pritchard learns that-- Capt. Towers, of the Miller (Ga.) Rifles, is safe; Lieut. Hall, of the Rifles, is said by some to have been severely wounded, and by others to be dead; Lieut. Scott and Private Lathrop, of the same company, were killed. Capt. McGruder, of the Rome (Ga.) Light Guards, was wounded in the leg. George Stovall and Charles Norton were killed. Captain Cooper, of the Floyd (Ga.) Infantry, was severely wounded in the knee. These three last-mentioned Georgia companies are reported to have suffered severely, but no details have been obtained. Major Dunwoody was shot three times, but none of them were serious, and his horse was shot five times. Col. L. J. Gartrell, of Georgia, was slightly wounded, and his son severely, and it is believed the latter has since died. Captain Clarke, of Carroll co
From the Kanawha valley. One of Gen. Wise's Aids, Col. S. D. McDearmon, has just returned from Charleston, Kanawha. He reports that on Tuesday last, Capt. Brock, of the Rockingham Cavalry, together with Col. Clarkson, charged about three hundred of the enemy, on the side of a mountain, twelve miles below Charleston, killing between twelve and eighteen of them. On the next day, Wednesday, between four and five o'clock, the enemy, amounting to 2,500, attacked our forces under Lieut. Col. Geo. S. Patton, commanding 800 men, at the mouth of Searry Creek, fifteen miles below Charleston, on the Kanawha. The enemy were repulsed with a loss of from 250 to 400 killed and wounded. Col. Norton, of the Indiana Regiment, was wounded and taken prisoner. Col. Woodruff, Lieut. Col. Neff, and Col. De Villiers, of the 11th Ohio Regiment, together with two captains and a lieutenant, were also taken prisoners. Lieut. Col. Patton was wounded.
