doing what in him lies to give to his fellow countrymen a profound bias in favor of the autochthonous. What are the Tibers and Scamanders, he cries, measured by the Missouri and the Amazon? Or what the loveliness of Illysus or Avon by the Connecticut or the Potomack?-Whenever a nation wills it, prodigies are born. Admiration and patronage create myriads who struggle for the mastery, and for the olympick crown. Encourage the game and the victors will come. In some measure, no doubt, Rip Van Winkle, the Indian romances of Cooper, the philosophy of Emerson and Thoreau, the novels of Hawthorne, Longfellow's Evangeline, Miles Standish, and Hiawatha were responses to this encouragement of the game — to the nation's willing an expression of its new American consciousness. Against the full rigour of the demand for an independent national literature there was, by the middle of the last century, a wholesome reaction represented in Rufus Wilmot Griswold's introduction to his Prose writer

ists nine plays by American writers, among them Pocahontas by George Washington Custis and John Kerr's first draft of Rip Van Winkle. In 1829 Forrest produced the Indian play of Metamora by John Augustus Stone, an actor who lived during his creatiton in 1812 under the title of Paul and Alexis, were vastly popular. Most important in this class was the genesis of Rip Van Winkle. As early as 26 May, 1828, Thomas Flynn seems to have played a version of Rip Van Winkle in Albany. It was written Rip Van Winkle in Albany. It was written by an native of Albany. Phelps, H. S., Players of a century, Albany, 1880. In October, 1829, there was produced in Philadelphia Durang, Second Series, Chap. L. a version written in whole or part by John Kerr, in which W. Chapman and later J. H. Hackett played Rip Van Winkle and J. Jefferson played Knickerbocker. This version was very popular and was afterward played in New York.

his shy and retiring habits. As he sat in the Senate Hall, the students saluted him with cries of Here comes old Knickerbocker, How about Ichabod Crane? Has Rip Van Winkle waked up yet? and Who discovered Columbus? In 1832, Irving returned to New York, having been absent from his country for seventeen years. His fellow citizer by the author of his American principles, was stopped from any such folly by the fact that the same volume contained those immortal legends of the Hudson, Rip Van Winkle and The legend of Sleepy Hollow. In these stories, poems in prose, the author utilized, as the pathway and inspiration for his imagination, the great river oof letters. For the world at large, Irving will, however, doubtless best be known by his works of imagination, and the students in the gallery in Oxford who chaffed Diedrich Knickerbocker as he was receiving his degree were probably right in selecting as the characteristic and abiding production of the author his Rip Van Winkle.
