eyes; and when Mr. Longfellow included the poem in his volume called The Estray, the youth's cup was full. In Brookline, the young man had plenty of leisure for his favorite pursuits, for he wrote:— I have taken up reading very strong,—am much interested in Carlyle's Miscellanies and have quite a fancy for German—have begun to dabble a little in the study of it—next winter I shall go into languages wholesale. And in one evening he perpetrated four sonnets to Longfellow, Motherwell, Tennyson, and Sterling,— good—the best things perhaps I've written. From Ellery Channing he gleaned some items about the profits of literature:— Ellery has just been telling me about Hawthorne whom he thinks the only man in the country who supports himself by writing. He is enabled to do this as his expenses are very small. Ellery says he [Hawthorne] might live for $300, as he does at Concord —there his farm gives apples enough to pay his rent, $75.

Of the third course, in 1905, he wrote:— Feb. 28. First Lowell lecture (Wordsworth-shire). A great success—an unexpectedly fine voice. March 7. Second Lowell lecture. Carlyle, Ruskin, Froude, Hunt. March 28. Fifth Lowell lecture. Dickens, Thackeray and reading Tennyson's poems. April 4. Last Lowell lecture.

After it, Senator Hoar turned to me and said, grasping my hand, What I have to say is pewter and tinsel compared to that.
