B. Rogers and Judge Curtis; from Colonel Thayer of the Army and Captain Goldsborough of the Navy; from engineers and architects, clergymen and men of letters.

He went frequently to Braintree to see his old friend General Thayer, whose opinion on military affairs was acknowledged during the war by General Scott, in conversation, to be the highest authority in the United States, and these visits were returned by the old General, most often at breakfast-time, his own breakfast having been taken at five or half after. From General Thayer Mr. Ticknor received exact and keen-sighted explanations of all the movements of the armies on both sides, and was able to form clear judgments of the merits of military men who were often misjudged by the public.

In the summer of 1862 he met General Scott at W

Boston, February 21, 1867. my dear Head,—I am surprised to find that I sent you no answer about the meaning of El moron in the ballad of nd curious. But I did something better with it than look it carefully over, and learn what I could from it.

She will not make mistakes, nor do I mean to make that of thinking that I know more than she and you do. Yours ever, Geo. Ticknor. To General S.
