Jula Ward Howe, Reminiscences: 1819-1899, Chapter 7: marriage: tour in Europe (search)
Boston. Perkins here says that he'll patronize me. Thomas Carlyle was also one of our earliest visitors. Some time befo Mann, my sister, and myself drove out to Chelsea, where Mr. Carlyle resided at that time. In receiving us he apologized forngs myself. The conversation was mostly a monologue. Mr. Carlyle spoke with a strong Scotch accent, and his talk sounded h a flirt of his pen! Charles Sumner was spoken of, and Mr. Carlyle said, Oh yes; Mr. Sumner was a vera dull man, but he did not offend people, and he got on in society here. Carlyle's hair was dark, shaggy, and rather unkempt; his complexion war was the only person who at that time spoke to me of Thomas Carlyle, already so great a celebrity in America. He expressed great regard for Carlyle, who, he said, had formerly been his tutor. I was sorry to find in papers of Carlyle's, recently Carlyle's, recently published, a rather ungracious mention of this brilliant young man, whose early death was much regretted in English society.

s were apostles of freedom, its poets sang the joy of living, not the bitterness of sin and death. These good things were brought to us piecemeal, by translations, by disciples. Dr. Hedge published an English rendering of some of the masterpieces of German prose. Longfellow gave us lovely versions of many poets. John S. Dwight produced his ever precious volume of translations of the minor poems of Goethe and Schiller. Margaret Fuller translated Eckermann's Conversations with Goethe. Carlyle wrote his wonderful essays, inspired by the new thought, and adding to it daring novelty of his own. The whole is matter of history now, quite beyond the domain of personal reminiscence. I have spoken of the transcendentalists and the abolitionists as if they had been quite distinct bodies of believers. Reflecting more deeply, I feel that both were features of the new movement. In the transcendentalists the enthusiasm of emancipated thought was paramount, while the abolitionists follo

of the Decalogue and the discipline of the church. My eldest daughter, then a girl of sixteen, said to me as we left the church, Mamma, I should think that Mr. James would wish the little Jameses not to wash their faces for fear it should make them suppose that they were clean. Mr. Emerson, to whom I repeated this remark, laughed quite heartily at it. In anecdote Mr. James was inexhaustible. His temperament was very mercurial, almost explosive. I remember a delightful lecture of his on Carlyle. I recall, too, a rather metaphysical discourse which he read in John Dwight's parlors, to a select audience. When we went below stairs to put on our wraps, I asked a witty friend whether she had enjoyed the lecture. She replied that she had, but added, I would give anything at this moment for a look at a good fat idiot, which seemed to show that the tension of mind produced by the lecture had not been without pain. I once had a long talk with Mr. James on immortality. I had recentl
