Chapter 1: Cambridge and Newburyport To Miss Nancy Storrow: May 17, 1844 Dear Aunty: I In 1847 Higginson made sundry visits at Newburyport preparatory to settling there as pastor of oners. March 5, 1847 My second visit to Newburyport was singularly analogous to the first. Theup the fine long street joining Newbury and Newburyport, past Lord Timothy's house with the statues there you would go there again. Instantly Newburyport stock rose fifty per cent in my mind.
