Mary Thacher Higginson, Thomas Wentworth Higginson: the story of his life, IX: the Atlantic Essays (search)
nderful to the travellers than any dream, every inch of surface and each individual person being entirely different from anything they had seen before. In Mr. Higginson's Atlantic paper, Fayal and the Portuguese (1860), these strange experiences were described. And it was in Fayal that Mr. Higginson wrote his essay called the Sympathy of Religions. This paper was afterwards read by the author before the Free Religious Association in Boston, and later before the Parliament of Religions at Chicago in 1893. It was reprinted in England and also translated into French. While in Fayal, he was delighted to receive a charming letter from Agassiz, begging me to collect corals, starfishes, etc., of which I already have a store. And after his return, he reported:— I spent part of yesterday with Prof. Agassiz and enjoyed it very much, and he was delighted with my collection from the Azores especially the sea-urchins, of which he found eight species, some of them new. Some of the thi

o Kansas, and an earnest appeal was made for volunteers, rifles, and blankets in aid of the Free-State emigrants against whom the Missouri River was blockaded. It is amazing, wrote the impatient clergyman, how sluggish people have been in acting for Kansas. Nobody seems to feel the need of promptness or of a better organization. A committee, of which Mr. Higginson was a member, was appointed to arrange for the passage and equipment of emigrants to Kansas. In June, 1856, he was sent to Chicago and St. Louis to give aid and advice to a party from Massachusetts who, to quote a newspaper account, had fallen among thieves. From Alton, Illinois, he wrote to his wife, To-morrow I expect to meet our disarmed troops in St. Louis—poor things. I shall send them on through Iowa, where Stowell has gone before them. At St. Louis, Mr. Higginson chartered a steamboat to take the party up the Mississippi to Davenport, Iowa. This party, led by a certain Dr. Cutter, had been charged by a Miss

was in a manner a continuation of Cheerful Yesterdays, although more fragmentary. In 1905, Margaret was married, with her father's cordial approval, to a young Boston physician. The ceremony took place in the village church at Dublin, and Dr. Robert Collyer officiated. Fortunately his views about the heathen obey coincided with those of the bride's father. This clergyman was wont to relate in his own amusing way the beginning of his friendship with Colonel Higginson. When living in Chicago, he heard Higginson speak on physical training and utter an impressive warning against the use of mince pie. Dr. Collyer's curiosity was excited, and after the lecture he invested in one of the condemned viands. The consequence was, he declared, that his larder was ever after stocked with mince pies. This reverend gentleman and Colonel Higginson were born in the same year, and the latter once wrote these humorous lines for the clergyman's birthday:— I entered glad on life's wide fold, Bu
