On his way to the former city, he stopped to exa agricultural school of Hohenheim; and he afterwards spent a winter of study in Munich. His friend Horace Furness wrote to James's sister, after his death:— Whined tastes and an almost feminine delicacy. I remember so vividly how once in Munich, on a very warm, enervating spring day, he walked between five and six miles tothe and Schiller. And now, you see, I have at length torn myself away from Munich. Have n't you sometimes had misgivings that I intended to cut you all at home, and had married and settled down in Munich for life?

Enfin, said he, il y a trois systems de politique à present en Europe: il y a d'abord, le systeme du mouvement sans progress, c'est la revolution; il y a le systeme qui veut que tout reste ou il est; et il y a le systeme du progres, par moyen des lumieres. This I took to be downright phrase-making. On the arts he talked better, especially of the schools of Dusseldorf and Munich; but he talked best upon matters of literature, for he is, after all, more of a man of letters, I suspect, than anything else. He said that when Mad. de Stael was here she excited a great sensation, and that she had the men of letters of the time, as it were, trotted up and down before her, successively, to see their paces. I was present, he went on, when Fichte's turn came. After talking with him a little while, she said, Now, Mons. Fichte, could you be so kind as to give me, in f

After a week at Munich—where they again met Mr. Wordsworth and Mr. Robinson–they parted not only from these English friends, but from their Boston fellow-travellers, Gray, Cogswell, and Ward, and went on to Heidelberg, where they remained nearly four weeks, as a pause and rest after just three months of uninterrupted travelling and sight-seeing. Of his acquaintance and interests there, Mr. Ticknor writes thus:— Creuzer, the classical scholar, whom I knew here twenty years ago, seemed to me little changed. S<
