Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Olde Cambridge, Chapter 1: old Cambridge (search)
n of their horizontal position, afforded excellent seats for schoolboys, intent perhaps on exploring the results of their walnutting or chestnutting; or possibly a defiant nap might be there indulged. I have often wished that I had learned from Lowell on which of them he sat during that Hallowe'en night when he watched there vainly for ghosts. Only one of these longer epitaphs was in English; and the frequent Eheu, or O spes inanis, in the others, made us feel that emotion as well as accuraning, the Rev. W. H.
