Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Carlyle's laugh and other surprises, chapter 7 (search)
llstonecraft his advanced views as to the rights and education of women, a subject on which his first book, Alcuin, offered the earliest American protest. Undoubtedly his books furnished a point of transition from Mrs. Radcliffe, of whom he disapproved, to the modern novel of realism, although his immediate influence and, so to speak, his stage properties, can hardly be traced later than the remarkable tale, also by a Philadelphian, called Stanley; or the man of the world, first published in 1839 in London, though the scene was laid in America. This book was attributed, from its profuse literary quotations, to Edward Everett, but was soon understood to be the work of a very young man of twenty-one, Horace Binney Wallace.

He thus bequeathed literary tastes to his thirteen children; and though only one of these re

XII. Edward Everett Hale The life of Edward Everett Hale has about it a peculiar interest as a subject of study. The youngest member of his Harvard class,--that of 1839,--he was also the most distinguished among them and finally outlived them all. Personal characteristics which marked him when a freshman in college kept him young to the end of his days. When the Reverend Edward Cummings came to Dr. Hale's assistance in the South Congregational Church, he was surprised to find practicallame a member of the BA C [Boston Authors' Club] I am sorry to say that he already drank the Lager which was furnished him by the American Bottling Company So no more at present from your old companion in arms, Edward E. Hale, A B 1839. These letters give a glimpse at the more impetuous and sunny aspects of his life. Turning again to its severer duties, it is interesting to notice that in conducting the funeral services of Mr. F. A. Hill, the Secretary of the State Board of
