ged his services. Assuredly no other American critic of his day, save Lowell, may take rank above him. This residue of good work comprises a score of masterly book-reviews, including the memorable notices of Longfellow's Ballads, Hawthorne's Twice-Told Tales, and Dickens's Barnaby Rudge; some half-dozen essays in the theory of criticism, of which the earliest is his Letter to B—— and the most significant is his Poetic principle; and a series of obiter dicta, collected under the title Marginalia,is influence in an age when wholesale adulation was the rule, and when art counted for but little, was naturally wholesome. Among the best known of his critical dicta is his characterization of the short story in his notice of Hawthorne's Twice-Told Tales (1842). Probably no other passage in American literary criticism has been quoted so often as the following extract from this review: A skilful literary artist has constructed a tale. If wise, he has not fashioned his thoughts to accommo

ism, especially as it concerned woman; the whole prolific family of reforms, and, of course, the genius and career of each remarkable person. She had other friends, in this town, beside those in my house. A lady, already alluded to, lived in the village, who had known her longer than I, and whose prejudices Margaret had resolutely fought down, until she converted her into the firmest and most efficient of friends. In 1842, Nathaniel Hawthorne, already then known to the world by his Twice-Told Tales, came to live in Concord, in the Old Manse, with his wife, who was herself an artist. With these welcomed persons Margaret formed a strict and happy acquaintance. She liked their old house, and the taste which had filled it with new articles of beautiful form, yet harmonized with the antique furniture left by the former proprietors. She liked, too, the pleasing walks, and rides, and boatings, which that neighborhood commanded. In 1842, William Ellery Channing, whose wife was her

t is a curious fact that Mr. Samuel Longfellow, in his admirable memoir of his brother, omits all attempt to identify the stories by the latter which are mentioned as appearing in the annual called The Token, published in Boston and edited by S. G. Goodrich. This annual was the first of a series undertaken in America, on the plan of similar volumes published under many names in England. It has a permanent value for literary historians in this country as containing many of Hawthorne's Twice-Told Tales in their original form, but often left anonymous, and sometimes signed only by his initial (H.). In the list of his own early publications given by Longfellow to George W. Greene under date of March 9, 1833, he includes, 7. In The Token for 1832, a story. . . . 8. In the same, for 1833, a story. To identify the contributions thus affords a curious literary puzzle. The first named volume—The Token for 1832—contains the tale of a domestic bereavement under the name of The Indian Summe

ll red, like a lobster; and another black and blue, in great daubs of paint laid on not sparingly. Queer fellows!—One great champion of the Fox nation had a short pipe in his mouth, smoking with great self-complacency as he marched out of the City Hall: another was smoking a cigar! Withal, they looked very formidable. Hard customers. . . . Very truly yours H. W. L. Ms Note, again, how this tendency to home themes asserts itself explicitly in Longfellow's notice of Hawthorne's Twice-Told Tales at about the same time in The North American Review, (July, 1837):— One of the most prominent characteristics of these tales is, that they are national in their character. The author has wisely chosen his themes among the traditions of New England; the dusty legends of the good Old Colony times, when we lived under a king. This is the right material for story. It seems as natural to make tales out of old tumble-down traditions, as canes and snuff-boxes out of old steeples, or tre
