early Mary S. Potter to the later Mary S. P. Longfellow. They show many marked passages and here and there a quotation. The collection begins with Miss Edgeworth's Harry and Lucy; then follow somewhat abruptly Sabbath Recreations, by Miss Emily Taylor, and The Wreath, a selection of elegant poems from the best authors, —these poems including the classics of that day, Beattie's Minstrel, Blair's Grave, Gray's Elegy, Goldsmith's Traveller, and some lighter measures from Campbell, Moore, and Burns.

He wrote of it to Samuel Ward in New York, December, 1840, calling it something still longer which as yet no eye but mine has seen and which I wish to read to you first. He then adds, At present, my dear friend, my soul is wrapped up in poetry. The scales fell from my eyes suddenly, and I beheld before me a beautiful landscape, with figures, which I have transferred to paper almost without an effort, and with a celerity of which I did not think myself capable.
