f whose existence I had before no knowledge, as, yesterday, I received from the Canon Riego's library a copy of Damian de Vegas, Toledo, 1590, of which I never heard till I found it in his catalogue. To Don Pascual de Gayangos, Madrid. Niagara Falls, N. Y., July 24, 1844. my dear Mr. Gayangos,—I have not written to you lately, because I have been absent from home for the last two months, travelling in the interior of Pennsylvania and New York for Mrs. Ticknor's health, which, I am happy tas the Carcel de Amor, de Diego de San Pedro. I do not now need it, for it is among the books I bought at Southey's sale. To Don P. De Gayangos. Boston, August 24, 1844. my dear Mr. Gayangos,—I wrote to you on the 24th July, from Niagara Falls, since which I have returned to Boston with my family, and have caused the catalogue of my Spanish books to be made out, that goes with this.

Clifton House [Canada], Niagara Falls, July 29, 1852. my dear George,—I received, some days ago, your note written at Newport. We were then on the other side of the river, where we stayed ten days, our rooms—or at least the balcony before them overhanging the Rapids, right opposite Goat Island, . . . . making the island our great resort, seeing the sunset there daily, and passing two evenings of superb moonlight there.

To Hon E. Everett. Niagara Falls, August 22, 1859. My dear Everett,—By intimations in my letters from Boston, I find you must have been there, only two or three days ago. Of course your plans must have been changed since we parted. Pray write to me, therefore, and tell me what they are. I hope you will remain in Boston until I return, which will be in about a month,— certainly before October 1 . . . . We have had a very pleasant summer so far, and are living here most agreeably in a cottage by ourselves, but bel
