it. In a more distant scene Mrs. Child laid her Philothea (1836), a gentle, ignorant romance of the Athens of Pericles, the fruit of a real desire to escape from the clang of current life. Not much more remote from any thinkable reality was George Tucker's Voyage to the Moon (1827), in which a sound scholar satirized terrestrial follies in the spirit which seemed to his friends like that of Swift. For Tucker, see also Book II, Chap. XVII. To a slightly later date belong the two novels of Tucker, see also Book II, Chap. XVII. To a slightly later date belong the two novels of William Starbuck Mayo (1812-95), Kaloolah (1849) and The Berber (1850), stories of wild adventure in Africa. The first contains a strange mixture of satire and romance in its account of a black Utopia visited by the Yankee hero Jonathan Romer. Contemporaries suspected, what Mayo denied,that Kaloolah must have taken hints from Typee. The suspicion was natural at a time when Melville, at the height of his first fame, had not entered the long seclusion which even yet obscures the merit of that

e to the belief that the South had not received fair consideration at the hands of men who knew little about its life and natural environment. Such a book was George Tucker's (1775-1861) History of the United States (4 vols., 1856-58), which carried the story of the national development to the year 1841. The author was a lawyer ie been recognized as a standard book of its kind; as it is, it is known chiefly for the impression it made on those who held views it was intended to counteract. Tucker See also Book II, Chap. VII. wrote also a Life of Thomas Jefferson (2 vols., 1837), probably the best of the early lives of this statesman. The last of thee his hope. In 1834 appeared the first volume of his History of the United States from the discovery of the American continent. At the time neither Hildreth nor Tucker had written, and only Pitkin, Holmes, and Trumbull had undertaken a task like his. They were all didactic. Bancroft produced a work of a different character.

or in meditative lyrics. Written for local newspapers, preserved in scrap-books, collected in volumes like those of Simms and Miss Mason, sifted by the later editors and collectors, they preserve heroes and incidents, landscapes and sentiments that will always endear them to the Southern people. If we consider the poems from this last point of view, they serve to suggest the principal events of the war in rapid review. The gauntlet was thrown down in the poems hitherto cited and also in Tucker's The Southern Cross, Miles's God save the South, Randall's Battle Cry of the South, Mrs. Warfield's Chant of Defiance, Thompson's Coercion, and Hope's Oath of freedom. Among the group of Virginia poets who wrote of the early battles on Virginia soil, John R. Thompson (1822-73) and Mrs. Preston (1820-97) stand out as the most conspicuous. Of distinctly higher quality than the crude rhymes already referred to were Thompson's humorous poems on some of the early Southern victories. His On to

Professor George Tucker, of the University of Virginia, published in 1837 The laws of wages, profits, and rent investigated and followed this by The theory of money and Banks investigated (1839). Worthy of notice also is the work by the engineer Charles Ellet, period we may call attention to J. A. Ferris's The financial economy of the United States (1867). This period is also marked by a more systematic study of statistics as evidenced by A. Russell's Principles of statistical inquiry (1839), Professor G. Tucker's Progress of the United States (1843), and J. D. B. De Bow's The industrial resources of the Southern and Western States. In 1839, moreover, was founded the American Statistical Association, whose first secretary, J. B. Felt, published
