Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Chapter 13: third visit to Europe (search)
ospital I will never enter another until that final one appointed for all the poets. Will you have the goodness to say to your daughter , Miss Quincy, that I left her package for Mr. Graham at its address in Havre; and presume it reached him safely. In coming through France it was not in my power to go into Brittany, and avail myself of your letter of introduction to him; the place of his residence lying too far out of my route. From Paris I came through Belgium to this ancient city of Boppard, where I have remained stationary since the first of June. With kind remembrances to Mrs. Quincy and your family, Very truly yours Henry W. Longfellow. Harvard College Papers [Ms.], 2d ser. XI. 153. It is interesting to note the manner in which this appeal was met by the economical college. Henry W. Longfellow, Esq.

I was at Boppard on the Rhine, in the old convent of Marienberg, now a Bathing establishment. I travelled a little in Germany; then passed through Belgium to England. In London I staid with Dickens; and had a very pleasant visit. His wife is a gentle, lovely character; and he has four children, all beautiful and good. I saw likewise the raven, who is stuffed in the entry—and his successor, who stalks gravely in the garden. I am very sorry, my dear Margaret, that I cannot grant your request in regard

ished in Philadelphia. The theme of the volume appears to have been partly suggested by some words in a letter to Freiligrath which seem to make the leading poem, together with that called Nuremberg, a portion of that projected series of travel-sketches which had haunted Longfellow ever since Outre-Mer. The Norman Baron was the result of a passage from Thierry, sent him by an unknown correspondent. One poem was suggested by a passage in Andersen's Story of my Life, and one was written at Boppard on the Rhine. All the rest were distinctly American in character or origin. Another poem, To the Driving Cloud, the chief of the Omaha Indians, was his first effort at hexameters and prepared the way for Evangeline. His translation of the Children of the Lord's Supper had also served by way of preparation; and he had happened upon a specimen in Blackwood's Magazine of the hexameter translation of the Iliad which had impressed him very much. He even tried a passage of Evangeline rendere
