Frank Preston Stearns, Cambridge Sketches, C. P. Cranch. (search)
o say in jest that he was descended from Lucas Cranach, but that the second vowel had dropped out. He cared as little for the fashions as poets and artists commonly do, but there was no dandy in Boston who appeared so well in a full dress suit. In 1873 the Velasquez method of painting was in full vogue at Boston. Cranch did not believe in imitations, or in adopting the latest style from Paris, and he set himself against the popular hue-and-cry somewhat to his personal disadvantage. Charles Perkins and the other art scholars who founded the Art Museum in Copley Square were all on Cranch's side, but that did not seem to help him with the public. They cannot bend the bow of Ulysses, said Cranch in some disgust. He preferred Murillo to Velasquez, and once had quite an argument with William Hunt on the subject in Doll & Richards's picture-store. Hunt asserted that there was no essential difference between a sketch and a finished picture,--he might have said there was no difference

tion between the overseer and his friends, in which all the domestic relations of the negroes were spoken of precisely as if they had been animals. Returning to Cambridge, I found the whole feeling of the college strongly opposed to the abolition movement, as had also been that among my Brookline friends and kindred. My uncle, Mr. Samuel Perkins, had lived in Hayti during the insurrection, and had written an account of it which he gave me to read, and which was afterwards printed by Charles Perkins in the Proceedings of the Massachusetts Historical Society. He thought, and most men of his class firmly believed, that any step toward emancipation would lead to instant and formidable insurrection. It was in this sincere but deluded belief that such men mobbed Garrison. When I once spoke with admiration of that reformer to Mr. Augustus Aspinwall, a frequent guest at my uncle's house, he replied with perfect gentleness, sipping his wine, It may be as you say. I never saw him, but I

The address at the Cattle Exhibition we admired for its cleverness and wit, and for the dexterity with which before an assembly of agriculturists you rendered homage to manufactures and commerce. Webster returns to the bar. I have seen old Mr. Adams lately several times. He is very well; and indeed he is strong and more intense than ever in his hatred of slavery. I enclose a recent letter from him on the subject. I shall send this by Charles Perkins,--a most amiable and gentlemanly youth,—who will be in London in September, on his way to Rome. Farewell! Ever and ever yours, Charles Sumner. To Dr. Francis Lieber, New York. 4 Court Street, Saturday. dear Lieber,—I shall probably leave for New York, or elsewhere, to make an excursion for a week or more. Perhaps I shall join the Longfellows, who think of going to New York to see Dr. Eliot for his eyes. I am solitary here; but I go from solitude to solitude. I ended last e

in contending against the adversary and in endeavoring to persuade the court that he was right; and in all this he showed professional ardor and fidelity. The printing of the new edition of Vesey was not suspended during Sumner's sickness. Mr. Perkins edited the fifth, seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth, and twelfth volumes; and Mr. Charles B. Goodrich the eleventh. It remained for Sumner to supply notes to the sixth and the volumes succeeding the twelfth. Resuming the work in December, he comm. In the spring it will be opened; and, I feel sure, will receive unbounded admiration. The few who have been admitted to see it privately have expressed a uniform opinion of the genius and merit which it shows. I hear through Howe and Charles Perkins of your new work, Adam and Eve, and congratulate you upon your splendid success. Both write about it in terms of the warmest admiration. So the prophecy is coming to pass! The laurel is suspended over your head. Fame and fortune are beco

ome, indolent, as poetic as a rich young man could spare time to be, and one whose letters now help to make attractive that most amusing book, the Memoirs of Charles Godfrey Leland. There was my refined and accomplished schoolmate and chum, Charles Perkins, who trained himself in Italian art and tried rather ineffectually to introduce it into the public schools of Boston and upon the outside of the Art Museum. There was Tom Appleton, the man of two continents, and Clarence King, the explorer gain and again, and we saw them sitting with hands clasped, and serving well enough, as some one suggested, for a group of War and peace, such as the sculptors were just then portraying. Most interesting, too, I found on one occasion, at Charles Perkins's, the companionship of two young Englishmen, James Bryce and Albert Dicey, both since eminent, but then just beginning their knowledge of this country. I vividly remember how Dicey came in rubbing his hands with delight, saying that Bryce

round and before me were the friends and associates of the golden time in which his delightful humor and bonhomie so often helped me in charades and other high times. It was ghostly — there were Lizzie Homans and Jerry Abbott, who took part with him and William Hunt in the wonderful charade in which the two artists rode a tilt with theatre hobbies. The gray heads which I had once seen black, brown, or blond, heightened the effect of the picture. It was indeed a sic transit. I said to Charles Perkins--For some of us, it is the dressing bell Oh! this mystery! So intense, so immense a fact and force as human life, tapering to this little point of a final leave-taking and brief remembrance!
