eek days, though on Sundays he could go out with no fear of molestation. After his death his widow continued to reside here, helping out her income by letting rooms to students; and Edward Everett, Jared Sparks, Joseph E. Worcester and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow among others occupied rooms in the venerable mansion at this time. Soon after Mrs. Craigie's death in 1843, the estate was purchased by Mr. Longfellow. Since then the interest in the house on account of its connection with WashingtMr. Longfellow. Since then the interest in the house on account of its connection with Washington is overshadowed by the associations with our much loved and greatly honored poet. He first occupied the southeast chamber, and it was in this room that all of his poems from 1837 to 1845 were written. Later the room below this on the first floor was used by him as a study, and it remains to-day precisely as the poet left it in 1882. The grounds of the Craigie estate extended to the house on the right-hand side of Brattle street, formerly at the west corner of Sparks street, occupied by J

The Craigie house: Washington's headquarters and Longfellow's home. Revised slightly from its original, in Risk and other poems, 1879. Charlotte Fiske Bates. Behold! a double glory resteth here, Wherein was housed in Revolution's time A man who while a king refused a throne, Save in his country's grateful heart alone; And who by singleness of soul sublime Has made his name to every people dear. And he who wore the poet's anadem Kept the old relics in their primal place, Reviving yet the age of Washington: Poet and statesman-how their fate is one In greatness, goodness, and a world's embrace, Though time and genius widely parted them. A reverent love has kept the olden pile Almost untouched by innovating hands; Nor has Art stinted Nature,--here she lies In ancient ampleness to bless the eyes. Beyond are spread the open meadow-lands That stretch away to catch the river's smile. From massive clumps of lofty lilac trees Pours forth the searching fragrance of the spring, Greeting th

el as water, but without its glare, and with softer and more soothing gradations of perspective, the eve is carried to a horizon of softly rounded hills. More familiar still are the well known passages from Under the Willows : The sliding Charles, Blue towards the west, and bluer and more blue, Living and lustrous, as a woman's eyes Look once and look no more, with southward curve Ran crinkling sunniness, like Helen's hair Glimpsed in Elysium, insubstantial gold. In how many of Longfellow's poems do we trace this love for the river, which flows ever on past the windows from which he used to exult in its ever-changing, never-wearying beauty! The broad meadows and the steel-blue river remind me of the meadows of Unterseen and the river Aar; and beyond them rise magnificent snow-white clouds, piled up like Alps. Thus the shades of George Washington and William Tell seem to walk together on these Elysian fields. Dearer was the river to the poet for the name, which reminded

capacity of directors of the movement. A few weeks were now spent in private conversation with the professors whom it was desired to interest, and in the formation of the governing board of ladies. This has always been a woman's movement, and at first the directors were all women, though I acted as their Secretary and attended to the correspondence and general management. The first ladies had already been chosen. They were Mrs. Greenough and Mrs. Gilman. Our choice fell next upon Miss Longfellow and Miss Horsford. Our first meeting with these occurred on the twenty-fourth of January, 1879, when with their help we chose Mrs. Josiah P. Cooke, wife of the distinguished Professor of Chemistry. The public announcement of the scheme was all the time under discussion, and by the opening of the month of February those who had already become members of the body met and discussed a circular which had been prepared in outline. At a meeting held on the fourth of February, it was voted t
